Otepää is a small town set in the hills of south Estonia. It is the most well-known winter sports centre in the Baltics and the Winter Capital of Estonia.
In wintertime Otepää is a winter sports paradise for skiers, snowmobile riders and for anyone who enjoys the snow: there are slalom slopes equipped with elevators and lots of cross-country tracks. Otepää and it’s surroundings are where Estonian Olympic medalists (such as Jaak Mae, Andrus Veerpalu and Kristiina Šmigun) live and train.
Tehvandi Sports Centre is recognised as an all year round training area among high level sportsmen. In winter, FIS World Cup Otepää Competition (cross-country skiing), Tartu cross-country skiing Marathon and IBU Biathlon competitions are popular attractions in Tehvandi and Otepää.
