Owner description: Let us introduce ourselves. We are Timo and Maikku "brought by a train" to Yllas. That is how the local population call for the not locals. Anyhow we are locals now, Timo with 15 years and Maikku with 20 years of experience in Yllas. Both of us have an ISIA qualification (International Ski Instruction Association) with skills to teach cross country (traditional, skating, pumping), alpine, snow board and telemark skiing.

We had a great time discovering fat biking with Mailkku, together with our teenage sons. We enjoyed the trip, particularly the descent from Latvamaja, the snack in the wlderness hut and the fresh air. Fat biking is a great way to explore large areas in an easy and fun way. Highly recommended. We did it for 3+ hrs, but would not have minded to go further.

My wife did the snowshoeing up the mountain with Marja. A great experience and really good guiding. Great views from the top.

Sisun Timo piti meille erinomaisen 1,5h hiihtokoulutunnin perinteisellä hiihtotavalla. Vaikka olemmekin aktiiviharrastajia, niin opimme paljon uutta ja parantuneella tekniikalla loppuloman hiihdoista nautti entistä enemmän. Sisua voikin lämpimästi suositella niin kokeneille kuin harrastuksen alkumetreilläkin oleville hiihtäjille.

We took a cross-country skiing lesson with Sisu's Timo and we were really satisfied. Even we are advanced skiers we got excellent tips how to improve our cross-country skiing technique. We are happy to recommed Sisu to advanced or beginner skiers.

Wow! What a fantastic outing with Timo and his faithful dog Vwoko (spelling?) Timo is absolutely charming, professional and willing to answer any questions you may have.
This Back Country Skiing was a great new experience for us; it is a bit of a mixture between snowshoeing and a bit of ski touring, but without the hassles of the ski touring boots and putting on and taking off skins. We made our way through fresh powder far from the beaten track. The breathtaking scenery with the popcorn snow-covered trees will remain etched in my memory. I highly recommend this company. Thanks for a great time.

We visited yllas resort in March and this gem of a shop really made our week. We arranged both our private lession/trips and ski rental through Sisu, both if which were of very high quality. Through the week they even waxed and adjusted them all as part of the fabulous service!
We kept the same guide through the week with a mix of two 90 minute private lessons and two half day lessons. Our guide was a very competent instructor who was great at putting two skittish skiers at ease, very patient and supportive. The week was perfect with our final day tour going above and beyond, allowing us a mid point visit to the local petting zoo where we ate sausages over a fire.
I am certain we would not have had half the fun we did this week if we had booked with anyone else!
