On the weekend I travelled to St. Petersburg, Russia for a big air event called "Quiksilver New Star Invitational". The contest was held in Igora ski resort, just an hour and a half drive away from the St. Petersburg city center. I had the pleasure to travel with two finnish friends of mine, Petja Piiroinen and Henri Laakkonen. We had a lot of fun riding in Russia and the contest went pretty well for the three of us as Petja ended up 2nd, Henri 3rd and me 4th."

Hello guys!

How's it going? Here in Finland we had sunny spring weathers for almost a week and now it's -10 celcius so the snow got pretty damn hard. But at least there's some snow left and new coming on sunday and monday!
Here's two small edits we made with my buddy Joel Lahti:

Hans & Joel, rainy day, Mustavuori from Hiutale on Vimeo.

"This edit has been filmed in our local mountain, Mustavuori, just 10 minutes outside of Tampere city. We used to go there by bus every single day after school with Joel (Lahti) when we were younger. The place is still fun to ride and brings out good memories from childhood."

"Me and Joel are part of the Sappee SnowPark team and we got to help out in designing and building the park. They really want to put effort in the park and it has been really good to ride there for the past two years. Here's some runs from the park"
