The snow control is positive for the Lahti Ski Games 2021 and the multi-discipline event will be able to go ahead as planned
“The weather has stayed cold after Christmas and provided also perfect conditions for artificial snow production”, Snow Controller Tami Kiuru reported. “On top of a base layer of artificial, around 20 cm of natural snow fell during the first weekend of 2021. After the snowfall, snow production continued.”
The HS130 ski jumping hill has an adequate amount of snow at the landing and the preparation to shape the landing slope has started. The HS100 normal hill is on standby with an adequate amount of snow at the landing. Both in-runs have FIS certified ice tracks with a cooling system.
The 2,5km South course and the Karpalo Sprint course have all the snow necessary to cover the course network according to the rules. Final grooming is still in progress in some sections but a large part of the courses are already in use.
There are also about 30km other courses open around Lahti surroundings.
