Whitelines Snowboarding

Enni Rukajärvi

Enni Rukajärvi she started skiing at the age of six, but by the time she was 10 she’d thrown her planks in the bin and picked up a snowboard. A stint at a specialist sports college followed, and soon she was bagging big contest results. In 2009 she took the top spot at the Horsefeathers Pleasure Jam, and had a blinder in 2011 when she took gold at both the X Games and Burton US Open slopestyle events.

She was a favourite for the podium at Sochi 2014, and brought the silver home to Finland just behind Jamie Anderson. She also finished in 3rd at the 2015 Burton European Open.

Slopestyle remains her specialty, but she’s not just a medal-chaser – something she proved with her contribution to the Burton women’s team video.
