Four teams battled it out online to escape the blizzard!

All four teams of ViPS researchers successfully negotiated the Escape the Blizzard online arctic survival game by Seikkailu Oy at the Christmas party and were airlifted to safety!

Along the way they collected points in photo challenges and learnt various survival skills, including knots, first aid, shelter building, semaphore, the art of team communication and above all to keep calm and not panic!

Team Snowflakes, led by the ViPS director, Paula Elomaa, won the challenge with the most points closely followed by Team Knots.
