Skiing tracks at Hyytiälä


Prospects for skiing look excellent as the winter holiday week of the university approaches. There is plenty of snow for both skiing styles. You can check the official snow depth through the link on the right-hand side of page. The tracks have been under preparation since mid-January, and are already suitable for skate skiing. Trails for the classic style will also be prepared. The longest route will be 12 kms.

The kitchen has made an attempt add more local food from nearby producers on its winter holiday menu.
