Lahti, Finland been hosting every year Nordic Winter Ski Game and next year will be the largest in Nordic countries,I like the place because the location is only 1 hr drive from Helsinki by car. And if without ski game,you can come to ski here without fees but just bring your ski equipments .

This museum is small but it does have some cool stuff in it. There are interactive ski jumping simulations, a laser gun type game, and a reaction time game which I found were fun.

If you visit Lahti and like the winter sports, this is the place to go to feel the part of Finnish winter sport history. And yes, it's always so fun to play around with a ski jumping simulator and other activities.

The first part of the museum covers the history of skiing in Finland, mainly as it relates to cross-country skiing and ski jumping but also touches on the role of skiing during the Winter War.

Museum is small but full of Finnish skiing history and different activities. Suitable especially for adults (men especially) and kids. Museum can be easily reached by own car and parking lots availability is very good. Or... More
