Lapponia Hiihto / Lapland Hotel Olos
There are a couple of hundred kilometres of ski tracks in the beautiful landscape. The week is about having a good time in brisk company. Everybody gains a valuable medal and diploma. After skiing you can enjoy a sauna, swimming and dancing. There is no hurry at the service points, you can have a snack and some soup, wax your skis. During the days between skiing, you can for example watch the reindeer race. The main thing is to enjoy – not to win.
The Ski Routes and Style
The routes have been marked and they are prepared both for the free and the classic ski-style, but you can choose your style.
Keep your start number always visible. If you for some reason or other decide to drop out, inform the officials at the next service point (or by calling 050-598 4223) and return your start number and timing transponder/chip. PLEASE DO NOT forget to return the chip and your start number after the race. Skiers will be charged 30 € per unreturned chip and/or start number. In case you need help ask your fellow skiers to inform the officials at the next service point. For this demanding skiing week you should be in good form and at least 16 years of age.
You better know your physical condition and limits, as the fells are unforgiving. For windy weather, it is important to dress especially carefully and ski in groups.The organizers can interrupt skiing whenever safety requires it. Do not leave the route, then the last service scooter can not pass you by. The longest distance is KARRA-HUIKONEN on Saturday. If you feel exhausted in the mid way we courage you to give up at Pallas after 60 kilometres. We will give you a medal and you will be recognized as a member of the LAPPONIA SKI TEAM. There is a time limit 5 hours (from start) to reach Pallas, after that skiers are not allowed to continue race toward Olos. This is needed for safety reasons.
We recommend you to have a skier’s insurance, As the organizer can not take responsibility for any injuries encountered however caused during the skiing week.
