Opening day at Siberia… I mean Peuramaa

Local slopes are open! Peuramaa opened on Nov 30th, Serena on Nov 27th, Vihti Nov 23th, and I don't know about Grani or Swinghill but both are running their snow guns so hopefully soon!

Most 18 year-olds are more concerned with their Instagram following and class schedule than snow safety, but Wyatt Minor isn’t most 18 year-olds. He was practically raised on the mountain, unsurprising considering that his father owns and operates a classic onslope apres-spot.

Did David Wise Just Break the Quarterpipe Air Record?

Did David Wise Just Break the Quarterpipe Air Record?

Audi Nines has been notorious for pushing the boundaries of freestyle snow sports. That’s not too surprising when you consider the rocket-sized launch pads they have for jumps. Still, it’s always exciting to witness a record being shattered, and David Wise potentially just crushed the highest quarterpipe air. The skier sent it 38.39 feet out of a quarterpipe, and after floating in outer space for a second he touched down to a banked landing. RELATED: This Year’s Audi Nines Course Looks
