Lahti Ski Games

Article updated on February 26th, 2014: Every year at the beginning of March, Lahti is hosting the Lahti Ski Games, a World Cup event with the best ski jumpers, Nordic Combiners and cross-country skiiers on a 3 days long weekend. About 50.000 people visited the stadium last winter. Will you be one of them in this edition? The Olympic champion of cross-country skiing Iivo Niskanen will be there! Other Olympic champions are participating such as the Swiss Dario Cologna, double Olympic champion. In ski jumping, the double Olympic champion from Poland is coming as well as the whole German team.

There will be also games for the whole family, concerts, food, Games products and accessories on the square next to the Exhibition center (few meters away from the skiing stadium). Concerts fees are included in the entrance ticket. Don't loose your ticket if you are coming back in the evening!
