Levi now has a new downhill skiing service centre

It is located on the southern slope of the fell, opposite the Levi centre. The pride and joy of the new service centre is the six-person ski lift that is fitted with seat heating and roof, Levi South. The ski lift line carries a total of 99 seats. This makes it Finland’s longest seated ski lift covering 1,710 metres. Height difference 282 metres. Lift capacity is 3,000 skiers per hour.
The gently sloping piste is ideal for beginners and families with children. Senior citizens also wanted easier slopes to ski. In addition, the new slope also caters to the needs of foreign visitors for easier slopes.
The new downhill skiing centre includes the service building South Point. South Point will house ski lift sales, ski school, equipment hire and maintenance, the Levi Shop and children’s play area. The equipment hire shop will provide equipment for cross-country skiing, downhill skiing and snowboarding.
