Slope safety

When skiing, everyone is responsible for keeping the slopes safe and enjoyable for everyone: when everyone follows the rules, everyone can feel safe and enjoy skiing. It is a priority for us to keep our slopes safe and to continuously develop the safety of all of our operations.

Ski Patrol works to keep you safe

The red-coated Ski Patrol and volunteers with first-aid skills patrol the slopes and work to ensure your safety when skiing. The patrols respond to emergencies and rescue missions, offer advice on safe skiing, and work proactively to keep the slopes safe and enjoyable for everyone.

In case of emergency, ask for assistance from the Ski Patrol, the volunteers, or our staff at the lifts.

First aid

Our first-aid staff operate 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 nurse.

Snow safety

Our personnel monitor snow safety on the slopes. A professional with training for snow safety measures and evaluates the potential risk of avalanches.

If there is a potential avalanche risk, we share this information with our personnel and customers. We also inform about the risk at the lifts and on the slope-specific information boards, on the maps and on the slopes themselves using signposts.

112 Suomi Emergency app

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.

RECCO

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.

Drones

Flying remote-controlled drones over the slopes during the opening hours is strictly forbidden. In exceptional circumstances, including advertising film shoots, you may apply for a special permission in advance. by contacting Managing Director Jouni Palosaari, jouni.palosaari@levi.fi.

When skiing, always steer clear and keep an adequate distance to moving snowcats and snowmobiles on the slopes.
