Cross-country ski trails

Jämsä’s ski trails start at the Särkijärvi Sports Center and continue to Pykälä via Jämsänkoski, Juokslahti and Himos. The Himos ski trails from Himosranta connect directly with the Jämsä ski trail network and Pykälä. From Himosranta, the cross-country ski trails continue towards the slopes, crossing the Patalahti ice and connecting the ski slope areas of North Himos and West Himos, before rising to the peak of the Northern Slopes, where there is a challenging 5km illuminated ski track. There is a lean-to shelter by the ski track at the summit. The ski tracks which go around the golf course connect to the ski track which heads towards the centre of Jämsä. In front of the West Himos slopes, around the edge of Kuikkajärvi, an artificial snow ski track has been built. There is also a broad ski track network that winds its way around Jämsänkoski and Länkipohja. In addition, there are several kilomatre-long cross-country ski tracks at the Halli sports centre.
