    At least there’s the ice base, it’s important, but still a long time until the rally.

    Southern Finland (much more in the North than Torsby)is now practically snowless, which is very unusual for January

    On the contrary, it means allot. Good conditions does not appear over night. It is a process that spans over several months where the weather alternates between cold, warm, cold and snowy,
    and warm and snowy which will provide a thick layer of compressed snow and ice.

    Yeah I fear for similar conditions such as 2019. Here in Finland and in more north than any point of rally we just got our first few mm of snow yesterday.

    Lets see, I am hoping for the best.

    Btw, is there any easy way to get from Karlstad to Torsby to see shakedown without a car? I think I might go with the rallybus again but that does not cover the shakedown. And the stage in Karlstad only starts late in the evening. Or is there any action in the service park during the wait for the stage 1?

    If searching for second guaranteed snow rally besides Sweden, FIA should be looking to Hokkaido which has rallying heritage and a lot of snow guaranteed. If that would be Rally Japan, then the planned tarmac rally could be in some other country.

    It's perfect just an hour north of Hof-Finnskog, lots of ice and 50cm-1m snow banks

    For example opening round of Latvian and Estonian rally championship - Rally Aluksne was moved from 18Jan to 21Feb due to not winter weather in a region. 2 weeks before real start. So 5 weeks it's not so much as it would looks like...

    Isnt Hof-Finnskog the northest stage? It was same story last year, if you moved a little north you got perfect winter rally conditions.
