Ski / Sports
During the 1930´s the local and national Tourist Associations worked hard to promote Rovaniemi and Finnish Lapland as an exotic destination for the adventureous traveller. In wintertime Finland provides opportunities for cross-country skiing and alpine skiing. There are around 75 ski resorts in Finland, most of them small local hills next to cities and villages. The big ones, however, lie in the fells of Lapland, and are classic winter holiday destinations. The “Big Four” of Lapland’s ski resorts – Levi, Ylläs, Pyhä-Luosto and Ruka.
This beautiful poster by Osmo K. Oksanen & Raimo Raimela is a very rare Finnish ski poster and typical for its time. In great condition, ready to go on the wall. Would look great in a ski lodge!
