Enni Rukajärvi was born in Kuusamo in Ruka, Finland. She started skiing at the age of six and soon got a feel for the mountain lifestyle. By the age of 10 she’d thrown her skis in the bin and very sensibly picked up a snowboard.
This year she could well be a contender for the top Olympic medal, with slopestyle golds under her belt at both Winter X and FIS events. Her video parts are pretty slick too, and we can’t wait to see her in the Burton [Snowboarding] ladies section.
