Join the traditional downhill sledging competition of Fastlaskiainen!

Laskiainen is a real winter festival - you get to play in the snow, see various winter sports and eat traditional laskiaispulla, a bun filled with whipped cream and yam. Fastlaskiainen is one of the winter-themed student events in February. In the competition the organisations and groups of friends from the universities and universities of applied sciences in Turku will see who is who in downhill sledging. When calculating the score a team the "sledge" itself and the theme costumes are the basis and extra points come mostly from innovativeness, team spirit and reaching the finish line. Speed isn't a merit, as long as you aren't hopelessly slow! The size of the team isn't limited, but one should give thought to whether those who can't fit in the sledge actually contribute to the added value of the team. The winners will receive the legendary challenge cup and the name of the winning team carved into it along with media and attendee publicity.
