Pyhä in Finland will be offered to British skiers exlusively by Inghams

Four ski resorts in Scandinavia will be even more accessible to British skiers next season as Crystal and Inghams expand their programmes.

After an absence of five years, Crystal Ski, is reintroducing Geilo, Hemsedal and Beitostølen in Norway to next winter’s programme. And Inghams is adding a fourth resort to its offerings in Finland for 2013-14 — unspoilt resort of Pyhä.

Every week from 22 December to 16 March Crystal will fly skiers direct from London Gatwick to Fagernes Airport, from where the transfer to Beitostølen is only 45 minutes.

Hemsedal is renowned as the biggest ski area in Norway with an excellent snow record, offers a huge diversity of terrain, some convenient slope-side lodging and good children’s nursery slopes.  Geilo is a traditional “chocolate-box” village with 40 pistes to suit mainly intermediate and beginner skiers, several snow parks and more than 220km of cross country tracks.

Just north of the Arctic circle in Finland, Pyhä will be offered to Brits exclusively by Inghams. Set in Finland’s oldest national park, the resort — previously named Finnish Ski Resort of the Year after massively improving its infrastructure —offers some of the most challenging slopes in Finland including Huttu-Ukko, used by the Finnish Ski Team for race training.  It also offers the traditional Lapland
excursions from ice climbing to reindeer and husky safaris.

Pyhä is the fourth Finnish resort in the operator’s programme along with Levi, Ylläs and Saariselkä and is exclusive to Inghams.
