There are over 60 kilometres of ski trails at Koli. The
illuminated trail starting from Koli Freetime in Kopravaara goes all of
25 kilometres to Loma-Koli, which makes it Finland’s longest continuous
illuminated ski trail. In addition, shorter trails abound. Within the
National Park there are two fell trails, a 3-kilometre and a 7-kilometre
one, traversing the breath-taking landscapes round Ukko-Koli. The 3-km
trail is fairly easy, but the 7-km one is more demanding. As the skiing
season advances, the choices increase as new trails are opened in
preparation for the two major mass ski events of the year, Maisemahiihto
and Ahmanhiihto. Find an electronic map of the Koli ski trails here.
The first-snow trail is an 8-kilometre stretch of the
illuminated trail, reaching from Kopravaara to the Louhivaarantie
junction. The trail runs along a ridge, where snow cover comes earlier
than in more low-lying areas. The priming of the first-snow trail begins
as soon as there are a few centimetres of snow on the ground. Find info
on winter sports equipment rentals here.
When Lake Pielinen freezes over solidly, which happens by
early March at the latest, two ice skiing trails are opened. The
northern one, 9 kilometres long, runs from Loma-Koli to Vuonislahti,
passing the Raapio Lapp hut on the way. The southern one, 11 kilometres
long, goes from the foot of the Ukko-Koli slopes to Vuonislahti. The two
trails converge in Vuonislahti, from where there is a further trail
leading to Paateri.
