All cancellations must be made in writing at least 7 days before the start of the first reserved track time by email to trackbooking@ruka.fi. If cancellation hasn’t been made in time, Ruka Ski Resort has the right to cancel already booked tracks and withhold future bookings. Cancellation fee for not cancelled track reservations is 200€ and will be invoiced from the team/ coach.

Rukakeskus and Pyhätunturi Ltd. reserve the right to change the track locations and times if needed.

In case slope rules or practices are violated by the team/ a team member, Rukakeskus Ltd./ Pyhätunturi Ltd. are entitled to cancel track bookings made for the team.

In addition to these terms we follow the terms given by SHKY, Ski Sport Finland and Finland Snowboard Association.
