In Finland there are about 90 ski slopes, of which more than half are in southern Finland. The task was the following: to look at the data centers and find one that, without yielding to the eminent one, was at the same time not well known, such a center turned out to be Hyakarinteet or Hakya for short. The number of slopes is 13, which is second only to Himosu (21 slopes) and Tahko (23 slopes), of which 7 are illuminated. In fact, this is pretty cool for Finland in the literal and figurative sense, considering that there are only 12 slopes on the famous and well-known Kolya, and even less on the famous Messel, 10.

The maximum length of the track in Hyakya is 800 meters. Compare: Tahko – 1200 m, Himos – 1200 m, Sappee – 850 m, Messilia – also 800, as well as on Hyakya. Lifts 5 pieces, which is also second only to the “giants.” Good options for a little-known resort. Well, the most excellent, the resort is closer to the border than the same Himos, Tahko and Kolya! Of course, we could not go there!

The time of the visit was not in the season, so we didn’t expect to meet people there, we just wanted to get to know the resort and take photos. And here is the arch, it also shows the opening hours and the list of services provided at the resort.

The surprised fawn is the emblem of the resort. The inscription reads “The best place for the family”, by the way, which was confirmed later. The main thing for the family is the children, and here everything is provided for the children.

Time, again, was not seasonal, but there were enough cars in the parking lot, some of them with Russian numbers! There is always a wish to ride at such a time.

For children there are excellent conditions – everywhere there are special skating boards, sleds, cheesecakes … Take any and ride.
While we were examining the center, an early winter northern evening began.
Nevertheless, the lifts continued to work, everything was lit up.
There is a ski school! Prices, as it turned out, are quite affordable, and trained by an experienced coach.
The central office of the resort, he is a reception.
Ski shop, as well as rental equipment! All in the business!
In general, the place is cozy, I liked it right away, everything is somehow just like a family and there is no crowd, although it may be because it is not a season. But as we found out a little later from those who visited here in the New Year holidays, this is one of the main advantages of this resort. No one wants to queue for lifts. What kind of house with a pipe?
It was already quite late. The windows are reflected fancy winter patterns.
Hyakya Ski Resort
And someone was about to go home. The air is so healthy that no one suffers exactly insomnia, the sleep is excellent! Children have a wonderful active winter holiday on school holidays and lots of new experiences.

How nice, like this, at night on a frosty cut in a quiet ski slope. No one bothers. The slopes are lit until late in the evening.

The resort has accommodation options in different cottages, which we used. All cottages are of high standard.

What else do you need on vacation? I would like to say more about the cottages. They are almost all new, very comfortable, warm, comfortable … It’s convenient to have a rest for a large family – there are enough bedrooms and sleeping places. In the New Year, you can order Santa Claus for children, and fireworks on New Year’s Eve are provided.
