Welcome to the virgin snow!
The XX off-track skiing world championship
were held at Syöte
arctic hills in Pudasjärvi February
Since the first competition in 1998 the event has
gathered a growing number of participants in to the wilds.
“The best thing about the competition is
that you get a change to test your physical condition as well as your
equipment. You can also share experiences with other wilderness
oriented people. The aim is not to win, but to have a great trip.
Several participated teams, like our own, really got the spark to
compete in earnest when they realized they have full potential to be
well placed in the competition.”
