Antti Autti always wants to extend his season. For a long time, he has also had dream to go on a sea voyage to the west coast of Svalbard. Finally, in spring 2017, both of these goals came to fruition.
Together with fellow pro rider Roope Tonteri, Antti Autti and crew set the course to travel far up north while making brief stops to ride perfect spring snow in terrain where no one has left tracks before.

For Antti, the trip is not only about snowboarding. He heard from locals about the constant change of nature in the Arctic and now he had a chance to see it with his own eyes. Forcing Antti to think about his actions as a professional snowboarder, can a trip like this give a man new perspectives on a lifestyle which he has done for over half of his life? Find out above.

Featuring riding by Antti Autti and Roope Tonteri.
