The Lapland region
Snow normally begins to fall by mid-October. By mid-March snow averages 60 to 90 cm deep. But as the days darken, the snow and the Aurora Borealis lighten the polar nights and Lapland becomes truly magical.
The snow melts at the beginning of May to herald the start of Spring. From under the snow the soft green landscape of Lapland reveals itself.
Several fells and two Lappish villages make up the area of Yllas. At 718m, Ylläs fell itself is one of the highest fells in Lapland. Äkäslompolo village is located on the northern side of the the Ylläs fell and Ylläsjärvi village on the southern side.
With a skiing tradition dating back to 1930’s, it's no wonder that this region is so famous for it's 350km of cross country skiing tracks in some of Lapland's most enchanting country.
Yllas is Finland’s largest ski resort and a free ski bus serves the village. It is ideal for families, beginners and intermediate level skiers and has consistently good skiing conditions from November through to May.
