The Kohtla-Nõmme Winter Centre started its operation on the territory of the Estonian Mining Museum at the end of 2003 and is the only ski centre on the artificial hills in Estonia. As additional harm to the natural environment has not been caused by the foundation or the usage of ski slopes, the Kohtla-Nõmme Winter Centre has been highlighted as one of the best examples of secondary use of industrial landscape in Estonia.
The Winter Centre, built on gangue dumps, consists of two mountain skiing slopes, a snow tubing slope and, with enough snow, a ski sprint track. Mountain skiing slopes with their small slope angles and height differences are well suited for beginners to get confidence on skis, but also offer an interesting change for experienced skiers.
Snow tubing i.e. riding on an inner tube down a hill brings a lot of fun for both young and old. The Kohtla Winter Center’s 250 m long tubing track with a height difference of 27 m is the longest in Estonia.
