Project Ylläs-Levi 2017

This season, we will repeat the success from Project Årefjäll, this time with candidates from three countries working towards competing in the brand new Visma Ski Classics competition in Ylläs-Levi, Finland.


A rare opportunity

Do you want to challenge yourself and experience what it takes to complete a Visma Ski Classics race?
Are you interested in improving your physical form and skiing skills, without knowing how to initiate?
Visma presents to you the perfect opportunity to kickstart 2017!

We are looking for 6 employees in total, from Oslo, Helsinki and Stockholm - in normal physical shape with no or limited experience from previous races, to demonstrate how to prepare in order to complete a Visma Ski Classics race. Together with a team of professionals, we will make sure you get the necessary support, training and follow-up along the way.
The project will start up early January and end with you crossing the finishing line in the Ylläs-Levi race April 8.

What are you waiting for? Seize this opportunity and sign up in the form below within Sunday December 11.

What’s in it for you?

If you are selected for the project, you will get:

  • A thorough medical check-up at the start of the program
  • A tailored training program focusing on developing your strength, stamina, and skiing technique
  • Support and training with a team of professionals throughout the project
  • A Visma Ski Classics training suit
  • Participation, travel cost and accommodation for the Ylläs-Levi race
  • Internal fame and admiration from over 5,000 Visma colleagues
  • Polar M400 Sports watch

What we ask of you

By signing up, you agree to

  • Complete the training program, with a minimum of 1-2 trainings per week in the project period (January - April 8)
  • Participate in Ylläs-Levi 2017 on April 8
  • Document your experiences throughout the project. That means blogging frequently and regularly about the training program, your progress and your experiences, as well as sharing updates, photos and videos in social media

The small print

The Project Group for Project Ylläs-Levi will select the winner on December 19.
For practical purposes, the candidate must be located in Oslo, Stockholm, Helsinki or nearby.
The training will take place outside of working hours.

Due to tax regulations, we may have to report the value of the ski suit, participation, travel and accommodation for Ylläs-Levi, and other expenses Visma may cover during the project.

The challenge will start up after the closing of the BPO sale, consequently the employees within BPO will not be part of this challenge.
