Ski passes, first-time skiing/snowboarding experience

If you are complete beginner, you will need usually for the first two lessons at least the Rosa & Rudolf Family Park - ticket (10€/person/day). Or you may also buy the combination day ticket for the use of Gondola lift and Family Park entrance, that is from 3-11 years: 18,50€/day, and teen & adults: 22,50€/day.  That is a good option, especially if you are staying at the Ruka Village area.

For your next lesson(s) to improve your skills to next level: usually during the 3rd lesson you should be ready to learn to use other lifts (pole-lift, Gondola-lift, chair-lifts) and ski/board down at blue level slopes - and you'll then need normal lift ticket (that also has access to Rosa & Rudolf Family Park).
