Skiing in Levi

Four times chosen as Finland's top ski centre, Levi's success is due to more than just slopes and tracks. A key element has been the friendly and personal service for which Levi has become well known. The season in the north is the longest in the country, spanning from October to May. There are nearly 50 slopes and more than 25 lifts with an uplift capacity of more than 27,000 people per hour so queues are kept to a minimum. Levi has seven mountain restaurants including the Tuikku, a panoramic restaurant at the top of the mountain.

With 230km of cross-country tracks, 28km of which are illuminated for night skiing, Levi has one of the best network of cross-country trails in the country. The majority of trails are for intermediates but there are beginner trails and more challenging tracks for more experienced skiers. In 2004 the resort hosted the first ever Ladies World Cup event in Finland, followed by the Men's World Cup in Winter 2006-7.

The ski school have over 80 instructors, most of whom speak English and lessons are available in alpine, cross-country, snowboarding and telemarking.

Pistes are well maintained and snow cannons ensure that snow is always in plentiful supply. Due to the low temperatures, powder snow tends to stay light and last much longer than resorts further south. Levi fulfills international FIS and World Cup standards.

Snowboarding in Levi

Most of the slopes are best suited to the intermediate riders and carvers will especially enjoy the well groomed pistes. The upper slopes are treeless but lower down off-piste riders will find tree runs and undulating terrain.

The resort has a terrain park and two half pipes, one of which is a 500m natural one with steep walls and good drops, its located below run 13. The snowpark contains jumps, rails, boxes and many more hits. It ever has its own website at www.snowpark.fi

The best powder faces are usually off Lifts 5 and 7 and powder tends to stay light longer here because of the low temperatures. Steepest slopes are the north-facing ones between Lifts 5 and 6.
