The 80-metre-long and 20-metre-wide halfpipe of the Vuokatti snowboarding tunnel is in heavy use by the athletes of the Vuokatti Sports Academy, amongst others. The size of the indoor tunnel provides the possibility for even wild jumps. Nearly all of Finland’s best snowboarders have sprung out of the pipe of Vuokatti: Peetu Piiroinen, Markus Malin and Enni Rukajärvi.
People of all ages can get to enjoy the thrill of speed in the snow chute because you can also go down it with snowtubing rings.
In the Sport Shop at the snowboarding tunnel, there is a large selection of clothes and equipment for both summer and winter. You can hire out skis, boards, scooters and skateboards from the equipment rental shop.
