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.
The 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.
