Cross-Country Skiing

At and around Santasport Institute, cross-country skiing is one of the most visible sports. Skiers from near and afar practice in the Ounasvaara environment year-round on roller skis, on the first snow track, and all winter on the extensive trail network of Ounasvaara and Rovaniemi. Skiing enthusiasts and world-class skiers alike come to train here!
