The cross-country skiing season starts with the first frost in October/ November with the opening of the 9 km-long First-snow track (in Finnish Ensilumenlatu) which is free-of-charge. It is suitable for both the traditional and skating methods of skiing.
On the illuminated track, there is a 37-metre difference in height. The track sets off from the ski centre at the bottom of the Front Pistes by the Areena Restaurant, heads towards Lake Taalojarvi and returns back along the same track.
The track is principally intended for skiers aiming to improve their fitness, but, at the beginning of the season, it is also very suitable for competitive skiers who need practice.
In the network of tracks totalling 230 kilometres in length, there are suitable ones for Sunday skiers, active fitness enthusiasts and competitors honing their skills. All tracks of Levi are suitable for both the traditional and skating methods of skiing. The little trail cafés that can be found along the way are mainly open during the skiing season. At Levi, people are still skiing on May Day!
Safety tip: Remember to take the latest copy of the ski-track map with you, and tell your place of accommodation in which direction you are going.
