Sometimes the best snowboarding you can find is in your backyard.
Antti Autti grew up in northern Finland, Lapland, a region that will experience 24 hours of sunlight in the summer and nearly perpetual darkness in the winter. It isn’t known as a snowboarding destination. However, a season of bountiful snow planted an idea in Antti’s mind, and he set out to discover the backcountry potential of his home. What came from that was a total change in perspective, and a renewed appreciation for the worldly destinations in traveled to while filming Statements.
Statements, Season Two brings us along to experience the lifestyle of backcountry snowboarding, where “earning your turns” is far more than an engaging Instagram caption. From Japan to Finland, join Antti, Enni Rukajärvi, Nicholas Wolken, Levi Luggen, and friends on a journey of personal exploration. Maybe it will change your perspective of home along the way.
