Rosa Pohjolainen, one of Finland's top alpine skiers, and Levi Ski Resort have signed a cooperation agreement. Rosa Pohjolainen will spend the 2022-2023 winter season in Levi training and rehabilitating her knee, which had a cruciate ligament in April 2022.
Rosa's goal this winter is to get her knee back in shape, that is, to rehabilitate it to normal. She also wants to improve her skiing and make her list of disciplines more versatile, and she also plans to invest in speed disciplines. At the beginning of December Rosa told that she has been able to ski for three weeks and now she is already doing cutting turns. However, skiing on the track will still have to wait.
- Levi is the best ski resort in Finland because it offers very good performance venues for slalom and giant slalom, there are many slopes and the ski season continues long into spring. Due to the challenging snow and glacier situation in Europe, Levi is a snow-sure training place, says Rosa Pohjolainen.
Rosa scored her first World Cup points in Levi in November 2020 after finishing 27th. At her best, Rosa has finished 14th in the Schladming slalom in January 2022.
- We want to support Rosa's journey toward her goals of being among the world's alpine elite. This winter, when Rosa is not competing, she has decided to stay at Levi for the entire winter season and train here fully. We are very happy to do our part to enable Rosa's return to the international competition slopes, says Marko Mustonen, Commercial Director of Levi Ski Resort.
Rosa's contract supports Levi's cooperation with the alpine ski team
Levi hosts the Alpine Skiing World Cup every year and Levi Ski Resort is constantly developing slope facilities, including the latest Levi Glacier project, which is unique in the world. International top-level conditions and high-level snow expertise make Levi a great center for alpine sports. The Levi World Cup Training Center brings together a world-class setting for alpine skiing, snowboarding, and freestyle sports enthusiasts. In October, Levi Ski Resort also signed a cooperation agreement with Ski Sport Finland's alpine team.
Levi Ski Resort's responsibility program
Since 2018, the Levi Ski Resort has been the only ski resort in the Nordic countries to have ISO 14001 environmental certification. In certification, the most important environmental aspects of the ski resort are the reduction of electricity, fuel, and water consumption, erosion control, and waste management. Concrete measures are taken to achieve key environmental goals, both at the level of investments and daily work. Levi's state-of-the-art automatic snowmaking technology, constantly renewing lift equipment, and extensive snow storage and recycling program create the opportunity for a long skiing season in an energy- and cost-efficient way.
