ROUTE : SCUPPERNONG SKI AREA - WISCONSIN
ACCOMODATIONS: HOME - MILWAUKEE
CONDITIONS: WARM AND HUMID. FISHER CROWN WAXLESS SKIS WORKED GREAT FOR TODAYS CONDITIONS.
Four weeks to go until Hiitopaiva 1. It sounds like the HHS route in Finland will be snow covered from beginning to end. At least, that is the way I understand the situation today! We have 28 men and women skiing the entire route from Virolahti to the Arctic Ocean, a distance of 1786K (with always the possibility of a few bonus Finnish K's thrown in). Six more skiers will participate in part of the journey bringing the participation to 34, the largest number in the history of HHS. Our group includes Finns, Slovenians, Germans, French, Swedes, Norwegians, and one from the States. We all will look forward to seeing old friends, meeting new ones, and skiing the journey Paavo first pioneered in 1998.
