Experience another world in tranquil Levi in Finland, where the reindeer warmly welcome you on a weekend in November. The women's and men's slaloms, also known as Lapland Races, are now an integral part of the FIS competition calendar. On this trip you will gain fascinating insights behind the scenes of the race circuit. You will have the opportunity to look over a serviceman's shoulder and exclusively test the new models of the 2018/19 Stöckli collection!
Recently Karin Bachmann ticked her last undiscovered ski resort in North America off her list. In Europe too, hardly a single piste is safe from the Ski-Crack. “When I visited Levi for the first time, I was immediately drawn in by the hospitality and high spirits of the Finns.” She is therefore all the more pleased to share her enthusiasm for the World Cup race in Levi with you. As a huge Stöckli fan, she is the perfect person to accompany you on this extraordinary journey to Lapland.
The outward journey with Finnair takes you to Kittilä via Helsinki, where on the first evening you will enjoy a typical Finnish evening meal to get you in the mood for the coming days. The Friday will be spent exploring Levi and testing out the new models from the Stöckli collection. The main events, the slaloms, then take place on Saturday for the women and Sunday for the men, and you will be able to follow them from the VIP stand. On the Monday it is time to say your farewells and begin the return journey to Switzerland.
When it comes to skis we rely on Stöckli, and you can exclusively try them out on the Levi pistes.
