The area features electrical hook-ups, a service building, showers, toilets, a bookable sauna, trash bins, a grill area, a football field, and a children’s play area. The western ski lifts are 6 km away, and in winter you can directly access a 10 km long village ski trail right from the schoolyard. The distance to the center of Tahko is 14 km.
