Scandinavian Cup 2023/24 starts in Vuokatti

Scandinavian Cup 2023/24 will start during the following weekend, as the competitions arrive in Vuokatti first time since December 2019. As usual, the opening weekend will gather lots of skiers in Vuokatti, as we will see close to 600 starts during the three days of racing. The level of the competition is extremely high, as on the start line we will see e.g. the 2021 50km World Champion, Emil Iversen.

”It is always great to have international competitions on our race tracks and we are more than happy to host the opening weekend of Scandinavian Cup. The conditions are amazing now, because on top of our first snow track we have gotten a lot of natural snow which makes the tracks great. It looks like it won’t even be so cold this weekend so that’s nice for both competitors and us organizers”, says the Head of Events in Vuokatti Sport, Ann-Mary Ähtävä.


Emil Liekari seeks to continue the good start of the season

 Scandinavian Cup also plays a big role as qualifying races for World Cup. One of the Finnish skiers who is looking for more World Cup starts this season is Emil Liekari from Vuokatti Ski Team Kainuu.

”My season has been good so far and now my goal is to have three decent races. On Friday’s sprint I should have the best chance for good result, maybe even a place in a final so top 6.”

”The Scandinavian Cup races are really important and of course it is nice to have races in Finland this time. The level of the competition is extremely high and for example in sprint you must be awake right away in the morning or otherwise you’re out after qualification. Hopefully I can challenge the prerace favorites who come from Norway.”, Liekari states.

Elisa will be livestreaming the upcoming Junior World Ski Championships from Vuokatti by utilizing 5G technology

The Cross-Country races of FIS Junior World Ski Championships (JWSC) that will be held in Vuokatti in February are livestreamed by utilizing 5G technology. A contract between the event organizer, Vuokatti Sport, a Finnish telecommunications company, Elisa, and a Finnish Software-based TV-production service provider, Kepit Systems, guarantees the livestreaming of the event is in good hands. In Finland, the competitions can be viewed through Elisa Cable TV, while the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) is in charge of the international rights.

There is a growing demand for the livestreaming of sport and other live events. The utilization of 5G technology provides a new approach that is easier than the traditional TV production. 5G offers up to 10 times faster connections, an increased capacity and an improved possibility to carry out livestreaming during outdoor sports.

The JWSC of Vuokatti will be mostly streamed through 5G phones, which have been placed throughout the race tracks. Live video will be sent from these phones to Kepit Systems where the broadcast will be made ready for the viewers. All of the races can be viewed through Elisa Cable TV and as a result of the contract between Vuokatti Sport and EBU, the races are also available through various broadcasting companies such as Yle Areena in Finland, NRK TV in Norway and SVT Play in Sweden.

‒ We want to stay current with the development of sports events and live streaming plays a big role in this. JWSC is a major event for us so it is great that we have a chance to cooperate with big players in the field and streaming of the competitions will be of high quality. We are not the only ones benefiting from the livestreaming, but also the athletes, teams and the whole sport of cross-country skiing will benefit from this. 5G is a great opportunity for us and I am confident that we can utilize it also in the future in other events, says the Sales Manager of Vuokatti Sport, Tomi-Pekka Riihivuori.

‒ JWSC will be streamed utilizing Elisa 5G network which has been in Vuokatti already for a while now. Thanks to the 5G network there is enough capacity in Vuokatti for a good quality broadcast and we can offer a new solution for the livestreaming of sports events. Together with Vuokatti Sport we can set an example of how 5G technology can be used as its best, says the Business Manager of Elisa Ilkka Pohtola.

‒ We have been developing the 5G-hybrid technology that is used for the broadcast for over a year and now finally we get to use it in this big of event. 5G connections enable large scale outdoor productions easier than before and by utilizing our hybrid technology we can put together the best features of the traditional TV production and the new 5G technology, tells Jussi Uljas from Kepit Systems.

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.

Vuokatti Sport Adventure Park


In the Vuokatti Adventure Park, there are nine adventure courses of different levels in a scenic environment in the middle of the forest. The courses of the park are colour-coded according to difficulty level into yellow, green, blue, red and black, i.e. from easy courses all the way to Finland’s most challenging course, which demands skill and daring, as high up as 12 metres. Each course ends in a wild zip line descent. On the children’s park courses, about a metre up, even the smallest adventurers can get to experience exciting and fun moments. In progressing, speed is not the most important thing, but instead experiences and putting yourself to the test!



The park is easy to reach by car via the Vuokatti slopes and from the car park of the park, it’s a short distance to walk along a path, going around the ridge on the right side towards the courses that can be seen high up. From the Vuokatti Sports Institute (Vuokatti Sport), it’s a short walk across the bridge over the railway and then turning right at once until you see a grey container building.

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.

Become a Champion

You want to be stronger, faster and in better shape. You want to challenge yourself and seek out your own limits. You want to break them and become even better. You want to feel alive.

Relaxedness comes from both exercise and tranquility. The everyday life will be left behind in nature, on the ski trails and in adventures. It’s forgotten in the corner of the gym and in the revitalising caress of water, the dressing room of the sauna and the chatter in the restaurant.

At Vuokatti Sport Resort, we redefined the activity holiday so that you could live out your dream. Choose your own way to relax. Take yourself to the very limit, learn something new, reduce your resting heart rate or enjoy adventuring.

Whatever you do, you’ll do it with in the footsteps of the top sportspeople in the world, in the best exercise facilities in the Nordic countries, amongst your own people.

That’s why the champion within you will always feel at home with us.
