Åkare: Antti Autti
For my whole adult life I’ve been snowboarding for living. From the moment I first got my hands on a snowboard I’ve been hooked. It’s been a long journey–longer I’d ever dreamed about: world champion titles, Olympic games, tens of thousands of people screaming for “Antti”. But in the end it has always been about chasing the same feeling I had when I was that 10-year-old snowboarder in Ounasvaara. For that reason, I quit competing. I needed to have that feeling more often. That’s why I chose freeriding–I wanted to be free.
This season, our crew is filming a documentary called Arctic Lights. It’s about my personal growth and about seeking the new options at The Arctic Circle. Our plan is to film nearby, chasing the arctic light. This time we’re not traveling to Japan or New Zealand or any other remote destination; we’re filming at Pyhä, Abisko, Kebnekaise, Lyngen, Tamok, Svalbard –at the places I can call my home.

Of course you ride the cabin village!
