Visitor Reviews of Ruka

Doug from United Kingdom writes:

Be prepared for the cold. Started at -36 but warmed up to -5 although with significant wind chill. A face mask is a good addition to your kit.

Positives: if you time your visit before mid Feb and the national holiday period, slopes can be almost empty and queuing non existent. Even though the slopes are all groomed daily, it is still possible to get powder on a piste if you are really lucky making for a fantastic start to the day. Plenty of off-piste and wooded area's to play in and children are well catered for.

Negatives: very few chair lifts, all of which appear to be non heated, although 1 is covered. Some long T-Bars which can be painful when shared with children. Little or no indication of which lifts are open in main resort, although typically at least the T-bars will be available.

Resort is costly compared to most European resorts.
