Skiing

The first snow in the Baltic States arrives in November, but the real skiing season begins only around Christmas time and lasts till the end of March. The average temperature in winter is -2 degrees (C) and with January being the coldest month. The heaviest snowfall in the Baltics occurs in southern Estonia and northeastern Latvia – and that’s where the most popular ski hills and tracks are located. These hills have well groomed ski runs of varying difficulty, tows, night lighting and snow-making equipment. Cafes or snack bars and equipment rental shops where you can rent skiis, boots, snowboards and other gear are nearby.
