Cross country skiing near helsinki

Post by DrSpacemanMD » Fri Feb 13, 2015 8:43 pm

I know Helsinki and Espoo has lots of cross country skiing routes but now that the snow seems to melting is there any places that have artificial slopes or use artificial snow near helsinki or espoo?

Ok nice I think I will check out Paloheinä this weekend, I do have one question do they mind if you bring skies on the buses in helsinki?

Also any idea how much it is to rent skies and things at Paloheinä?
