Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We got gift cards to downhill skiing for our anniversary, including 6h tickets and all the equipment. We were super nervous to go because it was both for us the first time to try downhill skiing. Luckily it was end of the season already, so place was not crowded. At first it was a little bit confusing to found the right place to park the car and found the rental kiosk (could be more signs for tourists to navigate). Rental kiosk guys probably are super cool guys but could use some training for proffessional and friendly customer service. I had to mention twice that I am the first timer and I don’t exactly know how the system works here. He just asked me to get the boots. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Also I would’ve liked if they would give more instructions where everything is at and where you find coffees and where its best to start. And they could’ve suggest us to hire the teacher or smth (there were very friendly private teachers on the hill). Anyways, nothing personal, its just we felt so stupid to stand there and start to go down from a random spot. After one small hill later, we wanted to take a snack but noticed the yellow manor restaurant was closed. Thanks dude! For not having any signs anywhere, it was hard enough to walk to the door with clumsy ski boots 👊🏻😾. After I drank an overpriced cider in pub next to restaurant, got more encouraged to try other hills too. Overall, it was very cool experience for us, first timers. Messilä could do better with small adjustment like with music and upgrading coffee shops/restaurants. And guys, please, we know you are cool, but try to be more nicer to those who are not that experienced 😉

We spent 4 great ski days at the Messilä slopes. Not too busy, nice slopes for beginning skiers& snowboarders. Near Lahti& Vierumäki Resort. Stayed at Vierumäki Resort and Scandic Lahti.

We are from Asia so we have never ski before hence we attended short lesson in the school. My kids enjoyed it so much and they were able to pick up so well and quickly able to ski down slope. There is a short slope for beginners which is good and other higher slope for those more experience. This place is also easily accessible by public transport for us tourists.The place itself is beautiful and there is a fire to keep ourself warm or to barbeque sausage if one gets hungry.

Messilä isn't like the ski resorts in lapland, but it's one of the bests in southern Finland. Slopes aren't long but longer than other slopes in the south. There is nice area for children with equipments. Restaurants in the resort are a bit out-fashioned but you won't be hungry.

Messila is great to ski. Not far from Helsinki, the resort is not very big so its perfect for those one day trips just to take the rust out of your legs!
