Aavasaksan rinteet, laskettelija.

Aavasaksa Ski Center

The family-friendly ski center has one lift and three slopes. There is also a 60-meter carpet lift that you can comfortably take up to the snow tube and sledding slopes. You don't necessarily need to bring your own equipment, because Ylitornio municipality rents out both slalom equipment, snowboards, and snowtubes opposite the cafe.

Ski trails

If you want to ski, you can go directly from the ski center to the approximately 8.2 km long and partially lit ski track that goes around the Aavasaksa mountain. 

If the group includes people who are not interested in winter sports, it's e.g. less than 7 km from the skiing center across the bridge to the nice Matarengi village in Övertorneå on the Swedish side. The stores in Ylitornio are also happy to serve you.

Accommodation in Aavasaksa

Cabin accommodation, food and equipment rental are also offered by Aava Sky Village, located above the ski center, from where you can ski directly to the slopes
