Today our team will be attending one of the largest events held in Kuusamo. The ski resort Ruka will be holding FIS World Cup Ruka Nordic Opening. I have never seen any events like this live before, I am especially excited to see jumping. Anything involving humans launching themselves in the air and surviving is worth witnessing in person I think.
Ski Jumping, Cross Country and Nordic Combined competition weekend 20 000 spectators, great atmosphere, 10 competiions, 30 nations, 400 competitors.
I will post some photos of the ski events later and tell you what it’s like to be here surrounded by ski fanatics.
