Suomu is an alpine ski resort in the Lapland province of Finland, near the municipality of Kemijärvi. The resort is a regular venue for FIS Freestyle Skiing World Cup events.

Suomu first opened in 1965, and began hosting FIS competitions in 1989. The resort is sometimes known as "the Arctic Circle Ski resort" because of its close proximity to the major northern circle of latitude.
