The quiet of the woods and the group of friends that gathered made the experience great. We stayed in the large chalet which was open and warm, but the beds were unfortunately not very comfortable, although after a day of being on snow shoes, they made due. My one real concern was the setting off of the fire works. We... More

Hello there Graham: Ski Tuonela is a resort, if not the only Ski resort in the Maritimes that welcomes dogs. Over the years we have had literally hundreds of dogs staying and skiing with their owners. On occasion there are as many dogs in the Village as owners! At New Years we let off about 20 minutes of fireworks. Also... More

My partner and I just returned from our first (of what we hope will be many yet-to-come) stays at Ski Tuonela. We did a four-day, three-night booking. The owners and staff were friendly and welcoming, the chalets were clean and warm, and the skiing was fantastic. We are late-beginner/moderately experienced XC skiers in our early thirties, and though we steered... More

Ski Tuonela is the perfect escape. From the 4 1/2 km ski-in, to the rustic chalets. We had an absolutely amazing New Years Eve. The hosts' provided a wonderful 4 course New Year's Eve meal, with lots of guests helping out by passing out plates and pitching-in with dishes. After the dinner, we had fireworks and listened to the guitars... More

The proprietors say that "Tuonela" is a Scandanavian word that describes a place that's "somewhere between heaven & earth." Well, that's as good a description as any of the experience at Ski Tuonela. Our wintertime visits to Tuonela (with & without the kids) are highlights of our year. Whether you're a first-timer or experienced XC skier, you won't forget your... More

Just spent new years at Ski Tuonela with 30 other fantastic guests and we all had a wonderful time. The weather was perfect with lots of snow and cold temperatures making the log fires in the comfortable cabins even more cozy. The nature surrounding the village was gorgeous and after some great skiing we settled into the main lodge for... More

My husband and I (in our sixties), our 3 adult children and 2 partners had a unique, active, and memorable mini ski vacation, Dec. 31-Jan.2. The New Years Eve meal, provided by the Ski Tuonela staff was a 5 course communal feast with live music.and was followed by amazing fireworks. Our rustic chalet was equipped to sleep 8 on single...

As a frequent day-skier and occasional over-nighter I can attest to the enduring appeal of this back-country ski haven. Skill and imagination are everywhere apparent – in the design and construction of the village, the cabins, and the extensive system of trails. Natural features are thoughtfully incorporated so that the experience becomes more than just exercise. A basic level of... More
