Kuopio City maintains the first snow ski track and ensures that it is in good condition.

For those arriving by car, it is easiest to drive from Sääskiniementie towards Tahkolahti and leave the car near Tahko’s ticket office in the large P area (Tahkolaaksontie 1). If you want to go for a stroll, for example, from the centre of Tahko, it is best to walk along the illuminated path at the base of Ravintola Kaisla (Restaurant Kaisla) when there is enough natural snow.


The first snow ski track’s starting point is located next to Tahko’s P area. It is about 1.4 km to Nilsiä from there. (Map from 2017)
