On the slopes, each and everyone is responsible for keeping the slopes safe and enjoyable for everybody: when everyone follows the rules, all of us can feel safe and enjoy the day on the slopes. It is a priority for us to keep our slopes safe and to continuously develop the safety of all of our operations.
Ski Patrol (with red jackets) patrol the slopes and works to ensure your safety when skiing. The patrollers offer advice on safe skiing, work proactively to keep the slopes safe and enjoyable for everyone, and respond to emergencies and rescue missions.
Our first-aid staff operates from the ski rentals of Zero Point and South Point. Both of our snowmobile units are equipped with emergency gear and are driven by an experienced driver accompanied by a trained healthcare professional.
In case of emergency, ask for assistance from the first-aid staff, ski patrol or our staff at the lifts.
We highly recommend installing the 112 Suomi mobile app because it makes it easy for the emergency personnel to find you. With the app you can call to the national emergency telephone number with a push of a button and the app will automatically share your GPS coordinates with the emergency center during your call.

We also use the RECCO Advanced Rescue Technology (RECCO.COM). The RECCO system is used by ski resorts and rescue teams when searching for people who are lost or buried in an avalanche. The RECCO reflector will ping back the signal sent from the search party's RECCO search device.
Flying remote-controlled drones over the slopes during the opening hours is strictly forbidden.
