Koli Extreme Carving Event 15-17.3.2019

Post by Matti » Tuesday 12 March 2019, 17:27

Koli Extreme Carving Event will be held in "Mt. Koli" :-P . The Koli Ski resort is located in Eastern Finland, some 500km northeast from the capital Helsinki, in middle of the most beautiful and wild national park.

Welcome to experience the wild nature, great landscape and one of the steepest EC-slope in Europe - “Ukko”.
We offer technique clinics for beginners to learn the correct Swoard Push & Pull technic and clinics for more skilled riders to learn the magic of linked lay down turns.

Northernmost Swoard Demo Center in the world offers Swoard Pro 2 Metal (168M / 168H / 175M) and Dual 2 (163 / 168) for you :chinese: .

Cabins/cottages/hotel are available in the area. You'll find more information on the Koli website at http://www.koli.fi/en .

If You are an enthusiastic EC-rider - whether a beginner or already an experienced old veteran- the Koli-event is for you.

More information by PM or by emailing from Matti (organizer of the event)

It's cheap! :D

In Switzerland there is now the "MagicPass" for 30 resorts at about 350 € only for full season. It is said to be unique in Europe. I saw that such passes exist in USA too.

Do you have some passes for several resorts in Finland?

:bravo: Thank you Guillaume! I will say around me (and to Grimentz-Zinal's director) that the journalists wrote wrong things this week about the "MagicPass". This is not unique on Europe continent!

In USA many people are complaining now about such passes because they make the resorts more crowded. I saw this slogan from angry people: "Pay for your mountain"! :lol:

Yes they do sell Czechskipass in CZ.

But for price 11000CZK (430EURO) with average daypass for 800CZK (31EURO) you need to be on the slopes more than 14 days. Well these 800CZK apply mostly for Krkonose. Other resorts are cheaper... In area I live prices are in average around 550CZK (22EUR).
Compare to MagicPass with price 400CHF (352EURO) and daypass 62CHF (55EURO) in Zinal (as an reference) you get payoff in 6.5 days! So here the Magic starts.
Maybe that is the reason why I read in the newspapers that Crans Montana resort (owned/controlled by Czech multimilionar Vitek) is critisizing MagicPass prices.

I do not need to mention that slopes in Alps to our local ones (even in Krkonose) are not comparable!

You are well informed! :bravo: It's right. Finally Crans-Montana stays in the MagicPass for 3 years more at least. And another big resort has joined the pass: Saas Fee. Great resort too!
