Lahti is famous as a centre for ski jumping in Finland. But it also has a nordic combined section. The Salpausselän Kisat first took place in 1923 and the city has hosted the World Ski Championships six times, the seventh to come in Finland's 100th independence anniversary in 2017. The juniors of the club are training at the Janne Ahonen Mäkihyppyakatemia. Boys and girls aged 6-12 learn ski jumping and cross-country skiing at the Mäki- and Kotkakoulu. Teenagers in the Hopeasompa group (11-15 year olds) have their personal training plans arranged by the coaches. The Nuoret (aged 16-19) also has personalized training sessions according to the different levels of talent from the athletes. Although female ski jumping has only been internationally recognized during the past few years and nordic combined is even further behind on this topic, Lahden Hiihtoseura has been offering the opportunity to carry out these sports for girls and ladies already for decades. Training takes place on the hills of Salpausselkä (Betoni – K116/HS130; K90/HS100; K64/HS70; K38, K25, K15, K8 and K6) and the surrounding cross-country tracks.
