Skiing Tahko on May30th


What a wonderful experience, hiking up the 200 meters high ski hill in deserted Tahko, in sunshine. And taking a sunset ski run back to the lake, almost all of it on still preserved snow.

And then, a swim in the lake. And camping in my car (didn't bother setting up the tent). Self-sufficiency with all the supplies, except for a quick refuel at an automated station.

Some might say lonely but I think it was calm solitude and connection to very beautiful nature.

The trip to Tahko was a part of a longer roadtrip, see the article about the other ski resorts. There's also articles about cave visits in Nilsiä and Suonenjoki.

It seems like all that quarantine stay-at-home training got a select crew of Chamoniards into the best shape of their lives. With normal ski season long gone, the likes of Leo Slemett, Pica Herry, Vivian Bruchez, and countless other local guides and athletes are still getting after it in the Mont Blanc massif. That means massive slogs from the valley floor into zones like the famous Argentiere Basin, Tof Henry taking up the art of speedflying, or finding new first descents on Mont Blanc
