Pronounced 'U-las', this is the largest downhill and cross-country ski centre in Finland with the greatest uplift per hour. The resort also boasts the country's greatest vertical, most runs and longest run ( 3km ). Many of the higher slopes are above the tree-line, which is unusual for Finnish skiing. The slopes are 4km from the resort, although you can nearly ski all the way back and in any case there is a free ski bus link. The sun does not rise in winter until late January, when temperatures can be as low as -15ºC although there is adequate daylight, Children get free rental equipment and lift tickets so long as they wear a helmet when skiing.
