Event offers unforgettable experiences for skiers of all levels. Join either a racing series or an experiental excursion series. Welcome to experience the first snow, the magic of Lapland and an atmospheric polar night. At the end of the day you can relax in the sauna and take a dip in the frozen water!

The Kiilopää Ski Event features categories for both recreational skiers and competitive skiers.

During the Kiilopää Ski Event, the blue twilight of the polar night and the winding cross-country trail through the snowy forest invite fitness skiers to experience a unique skiing adventure. The recreational skiing route offers a unique opportunity to ski in varied terrain within Urho Kekkonen National Park, mainly outside the regular ski trails. The route is a traditional wilderness trail, groomed by snowmobile and track planer.

The competitive category route is 40 kilometers long, with both classic and freestyle options. This route is a wide, bidirectional trail maintained by a trail machine.

Explore the winter wilderness, perfect your skiing technique and waxing skills in workshops, and start the winter biking season on Kiilopää’s winter trails. During the Kiilopää Ski Week leading up to the event, there is a diverse program for skiing and outdoor enthusiasts. Come to the fells for the whole week!
