Find a trail to remember, conquer the slopes and master the turns. At close proximity of Saarijärvi centre, there is a Kusiaismäki recreational area, where you can find activities all year around.

From December to March the area is a true winter wonderland. At Paavonrinteet you can downhill ski and snowboard, there are slopes for kids, beginners and experienced alike. At the ski centre you can find tracks of many lengths – from a couple of kilometres to Keski-Suomen maakuntaura Hiking Trail which runs through the whole Central Finland. Try snowshoeing to the top of Kusiaismäki hill, the white scenery is breathtaking. Before returning home, gain some energy with a cup of hot chocolate at Café Kahvio.

Summer is busy times in Kusiaismäki. You can fish rainbow trout and whitfish on Pajulampi lake (rent a boat and buy permits at Café ), or play Beach Volley. Refreshments are best enjoyed at the café’s terrace. On a sunny day you can play Frisbee golf (disc golf) (rent frisbees from Café Paavo), map of the route you can find here, but the sceneries you must come and experience yourself!

Those with most energy will walk up the Kusiasimäki hill to admire the view of dozens of lakes or hike to the Pyhä-Häkki National park.
