Ounasvaara in Summer

Summer season starts after Midsummer and lasts until the middle of August. During the summer Ski Resort is open Wed-Sun from 11am to 6pm.

Summer Bobsleighing

The super popular summer bobsleigh track on the Ounasvaara hill is a destination which you don’t want to skip but to visit every summer over and over again. A safe chair lift down below the slope at Ounasvaara Ski Centre takes you up to the top of the hill, where a magnificent view spreads out. The track, actually a 750 metres long chute made of steel, begins there in the height of 110 metres. A member of the staff will show you how to use the – either one- or two-man – bobsleigh. The summer bobsleigh activity suits for everybody because of its safety: one can easily control the speed by using the brake. Summer bobsleigh track is closed during the rain because of safety reason. We aim to reopen the toboggan run within 1-2 hours of the end of the rain.

The Scenic lift

The Chair Lift at Ounasvaara Ski Resort takes you easily up to the top of the Ounasvaara hill to enjoy the beautiful scenery that spreads out all around the landscape. It is also possible to go shortly hiking along the trails between the tops of Juhannuskallio and Tottorakka. The lift is closed during a thunder because of safety reason.


Bike Park

There are three downhill tracks built and maintained in Ounasvaara Bike Park. One of them is blue (easy) and two are red. You can easily rise to the top of the hill by a chair lift and bring your bike along.

There are also many unmarked tracks on the hill for more advanced cyclists. Over the years, Ounasvaara has been the venue for several mtb and enduro races.

We follow the Terms and conditions of Bikepark services found on the website of the Finnish Ski Area Association (FSAA). The website also contains important rules that increase slope safety.
