Finnish Ski - From Ski Smiths To Industrial Designers
20 September 2012 - 31 December 2013
Ski Game Spirit and Glistening Snow!
The basic exhibition gives our guests a crosscut view to the years of Finnish competitive skiing. The exhibition presents masters of skiing and development of skiing equipment. Ancient skis and ski making tools are on display. The development of competitive cross-country skiing and ski jumping is reflected by a presentation of the Lahti Ski Games. As we say, "each Finn wishes to participate at Lahti Ski Games at least once in his/her lifetime".
The exhibition will guide you on a tour at the Ski Stadium and the Nordic World Ski Championships in Lahti, from the 1920's all the way to the late 1980's. On your way you will meet many famous sportsmen and sportswomen. Naturally, the ski game officers and spectators - the essential forces behind the genuine, enthusiastic spirit of the Games - will also receive well-deserved honors.
