Espoo – Oittaa

Oittaa in Espoo has a 1.3-kilometer cross-country ski run of cannon snow for use by skiers 24/7. In the past, the lights went out at 10pm, as is the custom of the country.

In the evening, there are lots of families on the trail as well as skiers of different levels. Previously, active skiers were not allowed to ski on their own level. Now they also get to the track later in the evening when the trail becomes empty.
