Since spring 2009 I have been organizing snowboard gathering Anttisworld CUP in northern Finland. Earlier this year I  got a call from Pyhä ski resort asking me if I would like to bring the event to place which it deserves! I did not have to think twice for this opportunity! Here is Recap of Anttisworld CUP 2014

QuarterPipe was probably my favorite feature! It had been a while since I have been riding QP in Finland. this was our first one so it took a little while to get it right but in the end it worked really well photo: Harri Tarvainen

Set up was built right next to Cafe Wurst so the crowd could see the action real close. It had been a while since my last QP session in Finland so to me this was the highlight feature of the weekend! Photo: Harri Tarvainen

Jeppe Rontti was killing it during the whole weekend. he won on friday and ended up second on saturday. truly a great all around snowboarder from Finland photo: Teemu Heljo
