World Snowboard Day 18-12-2011

Miikka Hast BS1 at Revelstoke on World Snowboard Day 2011

New season had great start from Revelstoke, BC, Canada. I arrived in Canada a week ago to film with Antti Autti. Antti joined Protest team riders Miikka Hast and Jonas Hagström who also decided to start their new Snowtour from here due to good early season conditions BC has to offer.

Making of Antiout 3

More photographs from my phone. Clockwise from top left:

View toward the most famous fjell in Finland. Saana tunturi, as we call it in Finland, is located near Norwegian border, you pass it by on the way to Tamok. We never got to ride Saana, well maybe this year we hike up and take some turns.

This shot is from Folgefonn, Norway. It is a summer ski center and there was a lot of snow in may, in fact we got stuck on this road couple of times because of the new snow, and crappy rental car (not the red one you see here). This is the roadgap that can be seen briefly in Antiout. Landing was totally flat.

Helicopter pick-up is from Tamok, Norway. Really nice place and superb mountains! When there is no helicopter around you have to hike, no lifts, snowcats or even snowmobiles allowed.

Last one is my own DIY telecine. I transferred all the Super8 materials seen in Antiout by myself. Replaced projector lamp with led light and projected S8-film straight to DSLR equipped with macro lens. Great way to digitize your Super 8`s, quality is awesome. I will post another, more detailed story of this later.

This was interesting setup. Small camcorder fitted on this crazy  radio controlled helicopter in Folgefonn, Norway. We were supposed to get some of the footage from heli operator but the weather was really bad all the time and we were not able to do anything with this. Thats bad, it would have been great to see what this little thing can do. It was pretty cool looking thingy I have to admit.

Instead of crazy helishots we made a video that actually shows you how bad the weather was, check it out!


Whats up with the weather?

It has been really strange weather for the past month. Raining when it is supposed to be snowing, + degrees celsius when normally around this time we have freezing cold. I found couple of shots that I took in 26.11.2009. It was cold, snowing almost constantly and Ruka had already built a nice kicker for snowboarders and skiers. I have been thinking of a photo like these for a long time. This time of year we have only few hours of daylight and the “Blue moment” looks really nice so I just wanted to focus on that.

This photo of Ville Paumola was published in photo issue (03/2011) of Slammer magazine.

Another, similar shot of Antti Autti I used in Kinos 748 movie poster.

We had photo sessions in the park and after that took some powder shots with Antti. Ruka had already something like 40cm of fresh snow and it was so fun to start the season in Finland with good conditions.

Just like the good old days. 26th of november 2009 it was totally different than what we have now.
