I haave visited more or less all ski resorts in Finland and Ruka is by far the best. Lot of things to do for all ages.

Beautiful quiet slopes, picturesque views. No queues for the lifts so plenty of time on the slopes. Great accommodation, located right next to the slopes so you can ski back to your door,
