Lonely Planet review
At Lahti’s Sports Centre , a 10-minute walk west of town, things are dominated by three imposing ski jumps, the biggest standing 73m high and stretching 116m. You’ll often see high-level jumpers training here in summer. There’s a whole complex here, including the football stadium, a summer swimming pool, ski tracks and the delightful Ski Museum . A history of skis includes excavated examples from 2000 years ago, and Lahti’s proud record as a winter sports centre is given plenty of treatment. The fun starts in the next room: frustrate yourself on the ski-jump simulator, then try the biathlon and skiing on Velcro before nailing five bullseyes with your rifle. A combined ticket (€7) includes the chairlift up to the observation terrace at the top of the ski jump; great if there’s someone practising, and good for the views in any event.
