Nordic Skating diary

Condition of our long nordic skating track may change rapidly, even during the same day. During winter, the tracks are maintained every day before 10 am (outside heavy snowfall days/extreme conditions). Usually skating tracks opens end of December/start of January and closes around end of March.

25.11. looks very promising

Steady, freezing temperatures now and forecasted - lakes are beginning to freeze and enough ice may become rapidly. It helps greatly that there is no snow yet.
If things continue this way, we can start exploring the ice thickness during next week and start preparing safe skating ways to start the season before mid december!

22.11.2022 Waiting for the NEW season

Waiting for the skating season! On this page updates will be written when start of season approaches. Previous diarys and statistics of maintenance below.
At the moment we have cold temperatures in Punkaharju and are awaiting the first snows, hopefully we get a early start for skating and skiing season! Lakes are not yet frozen, but forecast looks quite good and cold for the following 10 days.
