The new Kiviõli Adventure Centre, a one-of-a-kind ski
and motocross complex built on an old ash hill in northeast Estonia,
held its official grand opening ceremony on October 11.
Parts of the complex had been begun operating – and
drawing large crowds – earlier in the year, including the
state-of-the-art ski centre, which features Estonia's largest downhill
ski slope, a snowboarding park and snow tubing run. In summer, the ski
area is transformed into running tracks and tracks for downhill and
mountain vehicles. A 700-metre-long zip line is available as well.
second half of the hill is a motocross centre featuring Estonia’s first
world championship course, which measures 1950 metres and has a
26-metre height differential. Its facilities include a large car park
for competitors, a washing area for motorcycles, a system designed to
keep the course watered, tunnels beneath the course and lighting along
its full length. The highlight event of the summer here is the two-day
Kiviõli Motocross Festival.
