  • The ice trail is open


    The ice trail from Oravi to Linnansaari is open. There is a thin layer of snow on the route (couple centimeters). Because of equipment problems the route should be ploughed to be ready in the early afternoon. We still recommend the kick sledge, because of the uneven spots on the ice.

    Haukivesi lake froze 5.1. but the thickness of the ice is still less than 5 cm and the ice is covered with snow so we have no plans to make any skating trips the coming weekend. Fortunately the weather forecasts predicts -15 degrees for the weekend. That means that the ice is getting thicker all the time :)
