Lack of Snow Cancels World Cup Ski Races in Finland | First Tracks!! Online Ski Magazine

Lack of Snow Cancels World Cup Ski Races in Finland | First Tracks!! Online Ski Magazine | Finland | Scoop.it

Levi, Finland -International Ski Federation (FIS) officials confirmed Thursday that the Audi FIS Alpine World Cup slalom races slated for Nov. 12-13 in Levi, Finland have been canceled due to lack of snow.

“The decision was clear in the end, since there was no snow on the race hill on the day of the snow control and the forecast didn’t promise any significant cold front. We can’t postpone the races by a week, since the speed events in Lake Louise (Canada) would be too close in the calendar,” said General Secretary of the organizing committee, Mikko Saarinen.

The Finnish Revolution!: Most of the Finns I know grew up with in dark winters drinking Koshkinkorva vodka ....Maybe this is the reason they are some of the hardest people around. 2011 definitely marks the year when the Finns made their big brake-through in the Freeskiing world.

Here in Finland, we know a thing or two about snow. In northern Finland there are snow flurries already in September, and snow on the ground from November until May. So, as the snow lies thick on the roof and a warm fire burns in the tile stove, we've had time to think of a few things to do in the winter. Poke your nose out the door. The air is dry, cold and fresh. The spruce branches are heavy with snow; the skis are leaning against the wall. What will you do today? Ski, go for a dogsled ride, go ice fishing? The winter awaits.
