Cross country skiing in Turku (a post for Joe Ayotte!)
Everything I know about cross country skiing I learned from Donna and Joe, the leading lights of the BKL in Concord. Having skied in Waterville Valley over hill and dale, I thought I was ready for Turku! But I learned that one thing I miss about New Hampshire is the relative emptiness of the ski trails. The place was packed and Finns are fast!
We headed out by bus to Impivaara soccer hall to find the ski rental provided by Turku next to the Nunnavuori trail. The trail was beautifully maintained for classic and skate and people were doing both. We will be back. Rentals are only provided on the weekends and Tuesday nights..
