    Original Pallas

    by einokj Updated Apr 12, 2004

    The hotel Pallas has a history common in Lapland. It used to be a really nice, functionalism-era, hotel which was demolished at the end of 2nd world-war by retreating german troops. In the figure, you can see what it looked like before the war.

    Above Pallas

    by einokj Written Apr 12, 2004

    Pallas is propably one of the oldest downhill skiing centres in Finland. It is located by the Pallas hotel (see my another tip about its' history). What really surprised me was that the slopes were surprisingly good, especially compared to the price of the tickets. (see my downhil-skiing tip ! Not necessary more than one day but definitely worth visiting only because of the sceneries. They were splendid.

    Equipment: see my downhil-skiing tip !
