The Koutalaki Ski Village resort in Finland has plans for a hotel with a ski-ready roof.

The building – located in Levi, Finnish Lapland – will allow guests to access the roof and ski down and directly onto the slopes, no ski-lifts necessary!

According to the development’s website, the entire village will consist of approximately 500 accommodation units varying in size from one room apartments to large luxury villas. Amenities will include restaurants, a spa and a market square.

The resort was designed by Danish architects Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) who are also responsible for a ski-able power plant in Copenhagen, Denmark and VIA 57 West, the Durst pyramid at 625 West 57th Street.

The Hotel Levi Panorama and the Congress Center Levi Summit – both part of the Ski Village – are already up and running, and according to The Telegraph builders will start constructing the rest of the resort, including that roof, later this year.
