Oldest ski slope in Finland
#Finland #Skislope #Skicenter #Skiing #Snowboarding Meet the Finland´s oldest ski slope! This 48 meters high hill was opened for skiers in 1934, making it the oldest in Finland today. It was equipped with a lift in 1951, making it 2nd ski slope in Finland with one. This place can be found in a town called Kauniainen (Google a recent New York Times story about it...) about 30 min drive away from downtown Helsinki.
No, it´s not an alien space ship or local Illuminati headquarter. It´s just an ordinary church that was built like this in the 60s. It´s a landmark of a small town called Hyvinkää less than 100km north from Helsinki.
