Cross-country skiing and Lean-tos
Only 4 km from the center of Jyväskylä, Laajavuori forests hide a 64km network of groomed cross country skiing tracks. 15km of the tracks are floodlit so you can enjoy cross country skiing in the winter evenings too. Varied tracks offer something for everyone: from the professional skier to the beginner willing to have a go. The track network is also connected to other areas surrounding Jyväskylä, so you'll be able to have long weekend explorations further.
We have 2 lean-tos with fire places along the tracks, offering a nice place to have a rest and to enjoy a picnic in the peace and quiet of the forest. We are continuously working on track network and signposts to make the trips more enjoyable.
