Experience the wild speed on the slopes or let the skiing tracks take you through wintry nature!
Downhill skiing and Snowboarding
The Sveitsi Ski Centre, which is located by the Sveitsi nature park, offers the best of winter to both downhill skiers and snowboarders, but there is also room for sledders. The centre has four illuminated pistes and a snowboarding piste. There is a children’s downhill skiing piste with a conveyor lift. There are cross-country skiing tracks that start from the area, and the wild sled hill provides wintry joy for the whole family.

There are over 100 km of skiing tracks, and there are routes for both traditional cross-country skiing and skate skiing. Head to the green areas of the city or deeper into nature, to the wild Kytäjä-Usmi outdoor recreation area.
In Hyvinkää the first snow falls early and winters are snowier than in the surrounding areas. Perttula’s first snow track is usually open already in November. If the weather is enough below zero, you can ski well into the end of March. In Erkylä you’ll find dog skiing tracks.
Printed hiking and skiing maps are available, for example, at the information desk at the town hall, in the library, in the art museum and at the Sveitsi Swimming Pool.

Try something different - kite skiing! In kite skiing you slide freely on the ice on either skis, a snowboard or skates while attached to a kite. Kite skiing is organized by Korpeen.fi.
