The spring is late here. The cold weather continues and the ice situation in the end of the March is one of the most severe for years. This means delayed start for the sailing season. Our initial plan was to launch already in the April, but many of the maintenance tasks are still undone, so I would consider the mid-May more realistic. So in this respect, I do not mind the cold spring weather.

For the Easter week, we travelled to Ylläs, in northern Lapland. This is probably the best time for skiing as there is plenty of sunshine and it is not that cold anymore. Here are a few photos from the slopes and ski trails of Ylläs.
