New in Pyhä

The most remarkable novelty for winter season of 2018-2019 is the expansion of Family Adventure slopes and opening of a new Huttu-lift, which increases the lift capacity significantly and decreases the time spent in the lift line especially during busier seasons. In addition to new lift and slopes there are new routes through forest in Family Adventure that offer great possibilities for practising free riding. In the area there is also a new, aurora borealis themed graffiti house that is accessible with skis or a snowboard.  Family Adventure slopes also serve well international visitors who wish to try skiing for the first time.
The 2nd phase of Pyhälinna-project is underway. In addition to the three already opened Pyhälinna-apartments the next two buildings (D and E) will be available for visitors for Christmas 2019 and they will increase Pyhä’s Ski-Inn accommodation capacity with 50 beds. As a whole, 4M€ worth of investments has been put to the development of slopes and building accommodation.
One significant novelty is also re-numbering of the slopes. In the new order the slopes that begin at the top the numbering starts from the left making Kultakero slope number 1 and ending to number 8, Huttu-Ukko’s Adventure Slope in the Northern Slopes. For the lower slopes, the numbering goes as Family Adventure being 11 and ending to Kids Ski Area, slope number 16. The goal for re-numbering is to make it easier to remember the numbers of the slopes.
The newest experience at the peak of Pyhä is a large photo frame with a chair from the old chair lift attached to it. The frame is situated right next to the panorama deck.
