Biathlon stadium

The biathlon stadium of Vuokatti is in use in both the summer and the winter. On the 50m range, there are 33 shooting places, it is lit up and its automatic target systems are equipped with lead catchers which collect the bullets shot. For the use of people who are physically disabled or visually impaired, a 20-lane target apparatus is available if required, equipped with air-rifle targets and lead catchers. Both the ranges meet the requirements of the IBU and IPC for competitions. The development area related to the Clubavana shooting range is the construction of a smaller, 5-lane 50m shooting range for practice use next to the exit of the ski tunnel.


Roller-skiing Circuits

In Vuokatti, the roller-skiing circuit is next to the ski tunnel and links up with the walking and cycling routes, so combined training is easy. Endurance can be worked on by going up to Vuokatinvaara to a height of 130 metres or by combining roller-skiing with a hiking route in the spectacular landscapes of Vuokatti. The roller-skiing circuit also passes in front of the biathlon stadium, which makes it possible to do biathlon training.

The roller-skiing circuit:

  • Length 4 km
  • Height differential (HD) 26 m
  • Total climb (TC) 106 m/4 km

The Vuokatinvaara ascent:

  • For intense training
  • Length 1.6 km/2.5 km
  • Height differential (HD) 130 m
  • Gradient 7 degrees
  • Surface upgraded for roller-skiing 2014

First snow track 10.10.->

On 10.10. every year at 10 am we open the first snow trail.

The earlier you get to train on real snow, the better the training of the winter season will be. In Vuokatti, the first snow track goes around the biathlon range, from which there is a direct connection to the ski tunnel. Tens of thousands of cubic metres of snow are stored every year for the first snow track and for making repairs necessitated by possible rains. In this way, the maximum effectiveness is obtained from training on real snow. After the opening of the first snow track, the hiking routes of Vuokatti are still snow-free, so combining the morning ski training with a round of Nordic walking, for example, makes training diverse.

When the first snow track opens at 10th of October the length is about 1.5 km. From that we continue making the track longer and longer and in its entirety, the length of the first snow track is as much as 9-10 km, weather permitting.

At the moment we have 3 km of first snow track open, check the following map!

Cross-country skiing trails

The overall length of the trail Vuokatti trail network (lower and higher terrain) is 150 kilometres, of which 120 kilometres are fixed up every winter for both kinds of skiing. There are 32 kilometres of lit-up trails in Vuokatti. The lights are not turned on if the temperature is -20˚C or below. The routes of both the lower and higher terrain start from the Vuokatti Hall car park. To improve safety we use wider trails in downhill.

The lower terrain of Vuokatti Sport

The routes of the lower terrain mainly go through dry forest terrain. The small hills are relatively steep, but still short enough for enjoyable skiing. In the Hiihtomaa ski centre of the lower terrain of the Sports Institute, you can learn skiing techniques and go downhill, either with skis or with other devices.

The trails of the fell, i.e. the higher terrain

The higher terrain trails go through a demanding fell landscape where the height differentials are large; as much as 165 metres. There are trekking routes or racing trails of 5–30 kilometres to choose from. From the basic network, there are connecting trails to the accommodation companies in the Vuokatti area and an ice trail to Sotkamo. In Sotkamo, the skiing is on the trails of Hiukka, and there are also routes to choose from to the travel companies to the east and south of Sotkamo. Rest opportunities along the trail network are offered by the huts and lean-tos marked on the trail map.

Huco Sport – Profile

The Huco Sport profile

With your personal exerciser profile (the Huco Sport profile), you can find yourself a way of exercising that motivates you and suits your style. With the aid of the profile, it is possible to set the most suitable objectives and draw up a training programme that is easy for your exerciser type to follow.

The Huco Diet profile

With the Huco Diet profile, you can identify different eating models, your own style, and also see losing weight and the challenges related to it in a new light. Thanks to the new level of self-knowledge, losing weight is easier.

The Huco Diet profile charts your current attitude and behaviour in three different sub-areas:

  • eating
  • exercise
  • attitude towards daily life

These three sub-areas do not guarantee all-encompassing and successful weight control if kept separate from each other. The sub-areas are dependent on each other and management of each area guarantees a healthy result in weight control.


Endurance tests

VO2 Max Test on a treadmill (Nordic Walking or running) or on a bicycle ergometer

In the test, the precise values for the aerobic and anaerobic threshold are determined, as well as the maximal oxygen intake capacity and the heart rate-lactic acid levels that correspond to these. The test is carried out on a treadmill either by nordic walking or running depending from the wants of the person tested. VO2 Max test can be also done on a bicycle ergometer. The test starts from an easy pace and it gets harder by increasing the inclination or speed every three minutes until the exhaustion point. After each of these three-minute stages, a blood sample is taken from the tip of the test person’s finger and this is used to measure the lactic acid in their blood.

During the test, we measure the changes in the test person’s breathing by using a breath-by-breath gas analyzing system. Test person’s heart rates during the test are saved in our system, and by utilizing these and the collected blood samples we can define individual training zones for endurance training.

The test includes both verbal and written feedback. From the feedback, test person can find individual heart rate zones, which they are able to utilize to plan their own training and to control own training speeds.

The test also includes InBody measurement.

NOTE! Watch a video from a treadmill test below! (English subtitles available by clicking a subtitle button from the bottom of the video)

Indirect bicycle ergometer test – RECOMMENDED!

The test determines individual heart rate zones for endurance training, as well as the aerobic and anaerobic threshold. The test is done on a bicycle and usually takes a maximum of 15 minutes. During the test, the resistance is increased step by step. The heart rate is also monitored and the subject is asked about the strain they are experiencing. The test is suitable for everyone, regardless of the age or fitness level of the test person. The test also does not demand maximal efforts.

UKK 2 km walking test

The test tells what the endurance fitness of the person being tested is, in relation to health and performance capacity. During the test, the person walks two kilometers in relatively fast speed. The fitness evaluation is based on the walking time, the heart rate at the end of the test and the background factors of the person (gender, weight/height, age). The test is suitable for exercisers of all levels.

InBody – Measurement

InBody measurement is an easy, quick and reliable way to measure the composition of your body. The measurement results provide diverse and detailed information about things such as the muscle mass, fat percentage and visceral fat amounts, as well as about fluids inside the body.

InBody measurement is done by standing with bare feet in the InBody device and holding onto the handles of the device. It is recommended that the measurement is done in the mornings, before eating breakfast and preferably with as little clothing as possible in order to facilitate and guarantee reliable results. The measurement does not cause pain or any other unpleasant feelings.

Muscle Fitness Tests

A traditional measuring repetition test is used in the muscle fitness test, in a studied way. In the muscle fitness test, the muscle endurance of the abdominal and back muscles and also the upper and lower limbs is tested. The test is a repetition test, in which specified movements are done for 30 seconds.

In addition to the measuring traditional tests, there are also isometric strength measurements and jumping tests done on a contact mat at the test centre, as well as tests done with the aid of a radar for even the most demanding trainers.

Ski Maintenance & Pro Shop

The Vuokatti Ski Service offers expert rental, maintenance, reconditioning and waxing services for cross-country skis. Whether you’re an amateur or a professional, the polishing or patterning of the ski helps in achieving the best glide. The patterning, which is carried out on the basis of different trail conditions, improves the ski’s glide properties considerably and adds to the enjoyability of the pursuit. For competition skiers, we offer professional polishing and patterning services according to the profile of the ski for different trail conditions.

An amateur benefits from pattern polishing in that, for example, frost patterning is used for the dry conditions in winter, and when the spring comes the base of the ski is reconditioned using water condition patterning.

Massage and physical therapy

Do you suffer from neck, shoulder or back pain? Does recovering from sports performances feel slow? Or perhaps you’d like to recover from injuries more quickly or just take a breather for a moment?

Massage affects the body in an all-encompassing way by making the metabolism more efficient, speeding up blood circulation and improving the movement of oxygen and nutrients in the different parts of tissues. With the aid of massage, the body is also cleansed of possible metabolic waste. Thanks to the effects of massage, renewal of the skin is also accelerated, the muscles relax, swelling is reduced and pain is eased.

We offer a wide range of massage services and Kinesio taping, by both professionals and students.

As a new service we also offer physical therapy services!
