Lahti Ski Games – History

Lahti Ski Games (Lahti World Cup) is a very traditional event. The Games began at the initiative of Tahko Pihkala in 1922, when Pihkala wanted a competition similar to Holmenkollen in Finland. A competition in Lahti, Cross Country World Cup, was hosted the first time in 1923. Since then, the competition has been cancelled only three times.

Lahti Ski Games have also been replaced seven times by the World Ski Championships, of which the last time was in 2017. Prior to that, the World Ski Championships were held in Lahti in 1926, 1938, 1958, 1978, 1989 and 2001.

The long history of Lahti Ski Games accommodates many well-known athletes. In the slightly more distant history, the most successful athletes in the history of the Lahti Ski Games include Leo Laakso, who won ski jumping five times in a row, and Heikki Hasu, who also won five times, but not in a row. Veikko Hakulinen won 50 km three times in a row in 1952–1954. In the 2000s, Marit Björgen has won the competition seven times.
