Overview

Let us introduce ourselves. We are Timo and Maikku "brought by a train" to Yllas. That is how the local population call for the not locals. Anyhow we are locals now, Timo with 15 years and Maikku with 20 years of experience in Yllas. Both of us have an ISIA qualification (International Ski Instruction Association) with skills to teach cross country (traditional, skating, pumping), alpine, snow board and telemark skiing.

Sisun Timo piti meille erinomaisen 1,5h hiihtokoulutunnin perinteisellä hiihtotavalla.

Sisua voikin lämpimästi suositella niin kokeneille kuin harrastuksen alkumetreilläkin oleville hiihtäjille. We took a cross-country skiing lesson with Sisu's Timo and...More
