Kiri slopes are suitable for both beginners and experienced skiers.

During the magical winter of Posio you can enjoy all kinds of activities related to snow, including downhill skiing! The Kiri slopes provide the thrill of speed for downhill skiers and snowboarders. The downhill skiing Centre in Kirintövaara is situated only 7 kilometers from the town center of Posio and it provides exciting experiences for the whole family.

There are three slopes in Kirintövaara, two of which are lit. The longest slope is 900 meters long with elevation of 110 meters. The profile of the slopes is suitable for children, but also pros can find challenges in the Kiri slopes.

The ski center has one anchor lift and a “magic carpet” lift for children. There is also a sledding hill for non-skiers. While skiing, you can enjoy a cup of hot chocolate or coffee in the cafeteria or enjoy your own packed lunch in the lean-to-shelters and campfire spots near the ski center. Hotel Kirikeskus is situated right next to the skiing slopes and there are also many possibilities for cabin accommodation in Kirintövaara.
