Ski Tunnel and the First Snow Track

Vuokatti Sport offers the snow conditions for cross-country skiing 365 days a year. The world’s first cross-country ski tunnel is 1.2 km long and makes summer training possible on a well-kept trail that follows the terrain of Vuokatti with its uphills and downhills. The trail suits both classic and skate skiing. Thanks to the even temperature of the tunnel, training is also possible during the cold days of winter.

In addition to the ski tunnel it is also possible to ski outside starting 10th of October every year because that’s when we open the first snow track! So remember 10-10-10, 10th of October 10 o’clock! Every year!
