No car, no skilift, no problem

No car, no skilift, no problem! My car is broken, but fortunately, since I live in the world's happiest town, I can walk to the ski hill, ski down to the bus stop, take the public transport to the public swimming pool, and lock my skis in the bike rack. And return by train.

Cost of the day's adventures: €4.20 for the transport and €5.50 for the swim and sauna. Not expensive, and I think I got more exercise than going by car to a commercial ski area and just going up and down.

The ski hill I was at the GrIFK Alpine's community ski hill, Granibacken. And the swimming pool I visited was Keski-Espoon Uimahalli.
