First Snow on Levi Fell


Levi World Cup Course Preparations in Full Swing

This week, the Levi fell in Finnish Lapland got a brilliant white cover when first snow fell on the area. At Levi, preparations for the slalom season opener World Cup Levi, taking place on 11 - 12 November 2017, are going full speed ahead. Snow stored for the Levi Black slope gives the world cup race a full guarantee, and the organisers are now busy spreading the snow onto the slope from top to bottom. A beautiful delicate snow layer already covers the entire Levi fell, and in addition to the natural snow, snow cannons are just starting to produce even more of the white stuff.

On the second weekend of November, both men and women will be racing at the Arctic Circle for the first slalom points of this Alpine Skiing World Cup season. On race weekend, there will be at least half-a-metre of snow on the world cup course, i.e. the required amount for the race to be run. This year, Levi Ski Resort stored snow for the first time – and it turned out to be a successful experiment.

- In regards of storing, everything went as well as we expected. The quality of the snow revealed from under the tarpaulins was very good, and that snow is now being spread onto the world cup course. We will also be snowmaking on the world cup slope this and next week, and on October 28th we will be injecting water into the snow on the course to make it harder for the race. We are in a constant hurry, but very much on schedule, says Jouni Palosaari, Managing Director of Levi Ski Resort.

The weather forecast keeps changing, but the night-time temperatures at Levi should be below freezing over the weekend. In addition to the Levi Black slope, we have snowmaking processes going on also on the Front and South pistes as well as the Alpine Training Park.

- After the world cup race, many teams will stay on in Levi and train at the Alpine Training Park, where we now have a brand-new snowmaking system in operation, Jouni Palosaari continues.

- We look forward to World Cup Levi, and the Levi Winter Season Opening that same weekend, with peace of mind. Now that we have the stored snow and are snow-sure, hopefully people will come over to see the races live and enjoy the Levi atmosphere, Palosaari muses.

Levi’s Winter Season Opening coincides with the World Cup Levi weekend, and the resort aims to have its Front and South pistes open for skiers. Also, snowmaking on the first-snow cross-country skiing track will get underway as soon as temperatures stay below freezing both night and day. So, on the second weekend of November (9 - 12 Nov), Levi will be buzzing with a grand sporting event, unforgettable experiences and a wonderful & exotic Lapland-style programme.
