April 14th, 2018


The international ski race Visma Ski Classic Ylläs-Levi 67 km on Saturday April 14th is a unique winter event that combines professional elite skiers with a huge mass of amateur skiers. A new 50 km event offers an easier route from Ylläs to Levi for those amateur skiers who may find climbing up and coming down a bit too challenging.

Ylläs-Levi is a brand new long distance ski race, but has existed as an unofficial marathon ski event for years. In 2017 Ylläs-Levi became the final event in Visma Ski Classics, the long distance ski championship consisting of the 11 most prestigious events around the world, and the tour ends in Levi again come April 14, 2018.

The course goes through a truly beautiful Lappish fell scenery in Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park from Ylläsjärvi, Äkäslompolo, Kukastunturi, Pyhäjärvi and finally heading to Levi.

Southern Lapland offers perfect snow conditions throughout the winter season, which makes the location ideal for Visma Ski Classics final. Both Ylläs and Levi are easily accessible by plane, train or car.

Registration for the event is open. So, set your mind and goal already for next year’s race and be part of something extraordinary!
