Ylläs 2025, week 8 ja 9

Ylläs’ skiing facilities are the best in the world. The Ylläs trail network together with the Olos, Pallas and Levi trails form a 1000 km trail network. Winter lasts from the end of October to the beginning of May.

The best cross-country skiing center in the world

300 km of different ski trails in wonderful scenery

Ylläs, Saariselkä, Luosto have their own favorites for cross-country skiing. There are two ski centers in Ylläki, the center of which is Nilivaara, the best place to live in Finland. The seven fells of Ylläs are in a wider area than Pallas and offer plenty of opportunities for skiing. You can also reach Pallas, Olokse and Levi along the ski slopes. The advantage of Ylläs compared to mountainous countries is that the trail network spreads in all directions. In the mountains, the trail networks run between the mountains at the bottom of the valley in two different directions.

Once I tried to ski all the slopes of Ylläs in 10 days. The work went very well while doing 70 km and 40 km ski runs. Five kilometers before the finish line, the wife at the time said it was enough. However, the odometer showed 400 kilometers. Next time I’ll go all the way.

If you want to improve your skiing technique or fitness by skiing all four Isometsä ascents, or go skiing with me for the missing five kilometers, then follow the opening of the online store on November 1, 2023. Sometime in the winter, I will do a two-month ski tour in Lapland, when I will offer high-quality skiing coaching in the fells of Finland.
