Cross country skiing

... them.

In the afternoon me and mum skiied to the ice restaurant where we had dinner last night. As it was 'off piste' up a steep hill going up was hard work. Coming down was less so but we spent most of it on our bums...oops! I think we skiied about 7km in total but I'm not quite sure. Everyone else back at the hotel was very impressed though. On the way there we saw some Siberian Jays - they look quite plain until they fly and you ...

We had been SOOOOO lucky, two displays of the extraordinary elusive Northern Lights in two nights.

Skiing in a Winter Wonderland

... lift. Finland doesn't have high mountains, so Pyha is one of the major resorts along with Levi. There weren't many people skiing & fresh snow, so much better than battling the crowds at Mt Buller.
I did appreciate the cafe at the top of the mountain, especially as it almost looked like a gingerbread house. Hot Chocolate is compulsory when skiing! The clouds came down fairly early, which affected visability, then it was dark ...
