Valopeura 2.6 km, has lighting, moderate (sawdust track)
Particularly suitable for Sunday skiers and those who feel that a few road crossings do not disturb their skiing pleasure too much. You can ski in both the traditional and skating styles. There are two uphill sections in the route. Be careful when crossing roads. Especially when coming down to the hotel, remember to exercise caution when crossing Kangastie road – the track leads across the road while sloping, so get ready to stop and follow the warning signs. The slope also has a 400 m section that has less lighting.
Pikkupeura 2.3 km, partial lighting, easy
An easier option than Valopeura. Starts from the upper hut towards Isopeura and forks to the left towards the Peltolenkki field. On the field, there is a pleasant downward slope towards the road. From the field, there is a short (20 m) but fairly intense climb back to Valopeura.
Isopeura 8.2 km, has lighting, challenging (forest track)
Has lighting during the skiing season. You can ski in both the traditional and skating styles. Mostly follows the Metsoreitti trail. There are two fairly noteworthy uphill sections, and the downhill parts are quite steep as well. Check the track profile by clicking on the track information link below.
