Ruka 2009-10 Season News (26-May-09)

Ruka, Finland, May 26, 2009 - The 2008-09 season is still continuing in Ruka

The 2008-9 season is still continuing in Ruka, Finland where a ski run is kept open to mid-June. Next season isn’t far away either with the opening party for 2009-20 to take place on the November 6th-8th weekend.

The resort has announced improvements ahead of next winter. To begin with the first part of the new RukaVillage hotel combining the best services of hotels and apartments, will be opened in September 2009. In total the building comprises 120 high-quality apartments (ranging in size from 30-90 square metres) and hotel rooms, each with a sauna and kitchen, and breakfast is also included.

On the slopes, the Masto MiniPark will be reshaped in order to make it more like the resort’s bigger famous BatteryPark, only easier, as the Masto Park is planned for kids and beginners mostly. There will be new jumps and rails and lots more. The Mini Cross track will be replaced with giant waves, which are fun and safe to ride. Snow waves for some skiing fun will also be created on slope 25 at Vuosseli.

The ever-popular children’s Rosa andRudolf adventure route will also be further improved, as well as the other children’s and beginner areas. Furthermore, the lift loading and unloading areas are improved in order to improve the service for our guests.

In the same way as partner resort Pyhä got it’s new FIS slalom slope on season 08-09, Ruka will have it’s own on ready for the winter season 2010-11.

Building of the new FIS slalom slope will begin in the summer 2009 from the top of Ruka fell down towards the ski stadium. The length of this slope will be longer than any of the former competition slopes, at 680 meters, and the difference in altitude a total of 180 m.
