Snowshoeing in Central Park of Helsinki

January 2011

Did the 2nd snowshoeing walk into the forest this year (today's Epiphany). Here's the route: link to Google Maps (about 11.5 km in 3h 40min).

Strong wind with a relatively mild minus degrees brought an interesting hiking weather, as the wind dropped huge glimpses of snow from the big trees. Like bombing but not life dangerous.

In Helsinki, there's more snow now than in Lapland. Last time the temperature was above zero was in the mid of Nov-10. Now the weather forecast promises above zero degrees (in Celcius), so most probably this was the last snowshoeing day in the powder type of light snow in the south of Finland.
