The concept of Ylläs-Levi has existed for many years as a lot of people have skied, either by themselves or in groups, from Ylläs to Levi, both popular ski resorts in Finland.
Then in 2016, a small group of cross-country enthusiasts rolled up their sleeves and organized an actual ski event called Ylläs-Levi with several hundred participants. Since 2017, Ylläs-Levi has been a member of the Visma Ski Classics family, and for the past three years the pro tour season has ended in Levi. The Ylläs-Levi region is a great place for cross-country skiing offering a variety of ski courses with over 500 km of groomed trails.
NEW in Season X: Ylläs-Levi will have a new climb position at Kekinenlaki, making the course hold 2 climbs and 1 sprints, which will make sure a lot of drama will happen in the final event of Season X.
