Finland has many old and wonderful traditions. This is not one of them. It's the annual costume contest a the Pyhä ski resort which features all type of ridiculous get ups and some awesome freeskiing. From twin vikings to mankinis, and gimp suits these dudes know how to end to the season in style - freaky style.
Spring Freeskiing in Finland is Decadent and Depraved | SKIWITHAJ, Ep. 2
This series follows AJ Kemppainen and his friends through the first ever Winter Olympics in the History of Freeskiing. Don't expect to see any competition coverage, because the mainstream media does that already and we think it's pretty lame anyway. We want to focus on what this sport is really all about and show flowyyyyy park skiing as pure as it is. We are happy kids from the darkness of Finland and so we also want to tell a little story about our culture. AJ Kemppainen is a 24-year-old professional freeskier from Ruka, Finland and will be competing in the Ski Halfpipe in the Sochi Olympics in February 2014. The rest of the crew will vary for each episode as the season goes on, but mostly AJ is skiing with Finnish Freeski Team members like Antti Ollilla & Lauri Kivari. Not to mention Säkistö, the man of mystery himself.
