The reindeer bid you welcome! If you want a long season, slopes practically to yourself, and sufficient snow, you should venture to Levi in Lapland this winter. The largest ski resort in Finland hosts the alpine skiing pros for the slalom race every year in November. Now, a few weeks later, our user Anna was there, and she sent us a bunch of really great snap shots.
Levi has repeatedly been named Finland's number one best ski resort. The season goes from October to May.
The 27 lifts and tracks are open daily from 9.30 to 19.00.
Levi features 43 different runs. The majority is marked blue and red. Unlike typical alpine slopes, they are all relatively short; after all, the drop between base and top station is merely 984 ft.
Going to Levi you really need to bundle up. Degrees below zero are common at all times of day here during the winter. Temperatures often go as low as -20 and colder.
Since days grow very short here in Europe's North, 15 of Levi's runs are illuminated after sun set.
The food is hearty - but yummy!
