Ever since we caught the trailer for this back in August during the mayhem that were the ‘Lympics, we’ve been looking forward to seeing the full thing. Former Olympian and all-round pipe-ripper turned backcountry soul-surfer, Antti Autti’s new full length ‘Relate to it’ is a powder-filled half hour of snowboarding in the peaks of Hokkaido, Japan; Tamokdalen, Norway; Monashee PowderSnowCats, Canada; Revelstoke, Canada; Ruka, Finland; Ounasvaara, Finland; Southern Alps, New Zealand and Riksgränsen, Sweden.
Apparently the idea was to create a movie where the spots ridden are actually accesible to you and I and to ride in a way that hits a nerve with us less fortunate sods. While we may not be able to relate to all of the tricks themselves, we can hopefully all relate to one unifying theme in this movie: deep, untouched, champagne powder… We’d say mission accomplished then Antti!
