This is our second visit to Y1 ski centre on Akaslompolo side of Yllas. Last year was supposed to be our 'once in the lifetime' trip to the magic of Lapland with our then 3 and 7 year olds with a little trial of skiing while we were here.... A year later we all couldn't wait to come back (with... More

My wife and I visited Akaslompolo between the 15th and 22nd January 2017. While we were there, we had skiing lessons at the Y1 ski centre and the instructors were amazing! We had Hannah, Saara, and Mika and all three were so patient, considerate and supportive. They took someone who had never skied before and in 5 - 1.5 hour... More

Great snow, especially for those who are used to the freeze/thaw ice of the Alps! Only a few runs are open until until the end of the 7th week of the year - then the sun comes out and everything opens up. A lovely area and friendly people.

This is the company that operates the slopes and lifts on the Äkäslompolo side of the fell. I liked the slopes very much, a little bit shorter than the one on the Ylläsjärvi side but still very nice. They have staff by every lift and that is a plus and I also like that they have maps by the lift... More

I spent two weeks in Ylläs area. This was my 10th times at Ylläs. Fell and the national park offer exelent possibilties for skiing, snowboarding, crosscountryskiing and snowshoeing. Near by fells offer good places for off piste skiing. Ylläs is my favorite ski resort in Finland. The best thing is area's versatiles. You doesn't found in here wild after ski... More

Stayed with my wife and two teenage boys. We are reasonable Boarders but the boys were beginners. This is a great resort for beginners and intermediates - ski and boarding. I thought the fact there are mainly drag lifts (button and T- bars) would be a negative for us as boarders but they just were not. The slopes have a... More

This is biggest hill in Finland and rices from see level to highest point 750 meters. Longest slope is 3000 meters and it´s pretty easy, so you can take your family with you all the way up. Full day which is from 10:00am to 05:00pm cost around 40 euros. Check the high season and low season prices if you travel... More

We booked a private ski lesson through our Inghams rep. Our female ski instructor was excellent, she persevered with me and from her tuition, I was able to ski after an hour. I had previously had 2 full day lessons at Chill Factor in Manchester but was not able to progress past snow plough turns and stops. We had 3... More
