5-12th March 2017 Club cross country ski trip to Levi, Finland
Levi in Lapland is the largest ski resort in Finland with 230 Km of cross country ski trails, 18 Km of winter walking, maintained snow mobile routes as well as 43 downhill pistes. It offers snow-sure, uncrowded skiing in an area of exceptional natural beauty. Cafes and sheltered are spread out around the area.
Every day we will ski in small groups, depending on preference and final numbers, with routes being worked out the evening before. There will be an opportunity to skate or classic. Skiers must have a reasonable skiing ability as no instruction will be given, apart from tips and encouragement from members. It is unsuitable for beginners - we recommend the Club's trip to Seefeld if you're a beginner or novice.
