The Long Distance Ski Championship


“The Season IX final event will once again be held at Ylläs-Levi in northern Finland. The quite newly installed event has grown fast, to become one of the major events in Visma Ski Classics. The course goes from one alpine destination Ylläs, to another one in Levi. Offering both demanding uphills and flat double poling parts. The event has two sprints and one climb position finalizing also all the points distribution for the color bibs, and being the final stage of the Visma Nordic Trophy competition.”

Ylläs-Levi area has 550 km well prepared tracks with a guarenteed snow seven months. With the help of Kittilä airport it is very easy to come and easy to stay with more than 45 000 beds and wide range of services.

Levi Events, as a organizing party, has a lot of experience of hosting international events as a World Cup Levi. Our mission is
to bring an arctic and Lappish dimension to skiers and Tv viewers all around the world. We ensure a stable and high-quality finish for the whole tour, from which the skiers, partners, the media and the fans all benefit.
