We came to Ylläs after a break from skiing to try something different. We were very pleased with our choice. The weather was glorious and the piste conditions excellent throughout. The slopes are not as long as in many of the French resorts we have...More

We're a family of 2 parents and 2 12yo's planning a few days in Yllas mid-week, 3rd week of January in order to see the Northern Lights, ski and do some husky and reindeer sledding.but have a few questions: 1. Can we expect most of the runs and lifts to be open then? 2. We've skied a few times before and are able to cope with green or easy blues (ie, broad and not too steep) but want long slopes (so often the easy slopes are for first time beginners and so short they're not worth skiing). Are there some longer easy slopes at Yllas? 3. I noted the comments about how hard it is to get to the supermarket from the hotel near the base lifts. Are there any apartments offering easy walk to both supermarket and base lifts? Or would you recommend just booking a hotel - do any have family suites for 4? Any recommendations which are reasonable cost? 4. How easy is it to get to the resort from the airport - which I gather has direct flights from England? Thanks

Hi, Yes most of the runs will be open. The slopes are very long and wide so you should not be disappointed. The supermarket is about 20 mins away from Ylläs sport resort but there is the ski bus which can take you there... More
