Summer season starts immediately after Midsummer. In the summer high season Resort is open Mon-Sat from 12am to 7pm. (closed on Sundays). In August Resort is open on Wednesday from 4pm to 8pm and Saturday-Sunday from 11am to 4pm. Lifts are closed during the thunder storm. Summer bobsleigh track is closed during the rain because of safety reason.
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.
