HISTORY BEHIND KARU
Dream from one generation to another
When a person is born with entrepreneur’s blood in their veins, they live following their gut feeling and they think that life is full of opportunities.
The most beautiful parts in Luosto’s long mountain chain slept almost untouched up to the 1970s. It was complete wilderness until the first forest cabin was built. Then came a narrow dirt road to ease transport. The profile of the ski slopes in the mountain enticed the entrepreneur couple to build something completely new and personal. The dream was to build an own small ski resort, far away from hustle and bustle, close to peace of nature and easily accessible for families.
The ski resort was built bit by bit, tenacity and hard work paid off and the resort began to find its shape. The old log cabin, which had been moved from Naarmankaira, got a face lift, the smoke sauna Susi was erected and the beautiful pond was dug as its faithful companion.
For years the ski lifts worked happily and the sun rays caressed the downhill skiers. For many guests the idyllic place has become a yearly routine.
The only constant is change. This is true for Perhe-Luosto too, and that is why we have opened the door for a new and refreshing breeze, still respecting the old.
