So I did it. I actually ended up riding in competition after 3 years. Ever since I left contest scene early season has been little bit weird to me. You are waiting the snow to fall so that you can start filming. You ride a lot to get your legs back in business but there is no pressure or this rush you would get during competitions or best days of filming in backcountry. Reason why I ended up doing world cup in Ruka was to prove myself that I can still ride pipe well and achieve this great feeling of landing your run! photo: Jani Karppa

This is one my favorite contest photos ever. Super happy that photographer Jani Karppa was shooting in Ruka. Usually photos from world cup are taken by amateurs …not this time! I can´t wait to go shoot with Jani again in Japan next month. My first and last pipe contest of the season was great times but there is no way that I would change perfect powder days back to competitions. Filming for Approach & Attack continues next month in Japan  photo: Jani Karppa
