In Finnish measures Vuokatti's hills are big, the longest descent is about 1100 meters long. :)
Besides normal slopes there exists a half pipe street for snowboarders and few easy slopes for children.
If you don't know what to do with skiis or snowboards, you can get a short instruction from professional instructors.
A season lasts from December to the April.
Equipment: You can rent equipmets from center. Equipments which I have rent have been in very good shape.
Vuokatti has houndreds of kilometers long skiing track system.
Routes varies from easy to hard race tracks. If you have time, take Vaarankylän helppo. It's long but much easier than racing track up on the hills. Views are also great!
Equipment: You can rent skiing equipments from Vuokatti Ski Service Oy: http://www.vuokattiskiservice.fi

Like the name of the tunnel says, tunnel is for skiing. But when skiing is possible outside, a part of the tunnel is used for curling.
Skiing in tunnel is a pleasure during the summer and you really should try it, especially if you haven’t ever skied before. But have to admit that the first time was amazing experience also for me.
When international skiing teams comes to Vuokatti in the autumn it may be hard to get turn to ski.
Equipment: Skiis can be rented and tickets bought from Vuokattikeskus' sport shop called Intersport.
During the summer time plenty of Vuokatti's visitors and of cource the local people treks on skiing tracks. This may be the easiest way to hike but in Finland people is allowed to hike anywhere in forrests when you are not destroying them. So just take a map and follow paths marked into it or just do hike without paths like I sometimes do. But if you do so, take map and compass with you!
Besides skiing track UKK route is great path to hike.
More tracks can be found from infokartta. Select Sotkamo from municipality and Hiking from theme.
Equipment: Good shoes!
