Teamwork: Helsinki | Presented by Salomon Snowboards

In search of fresh snow and unique urban terrain

As someone who was born and bred in the Finnish capital, you can only imagine my excitement when Salomon Snowboards announced they were dropping a film called ‘Teamwork: Helsinki’. My expectations for the film were as follows:

  • Hefty consumption of overpriced alcoholic beverages
  • Darkness
  • A lot of sick riding spots on the urban streets of Helsinki

“This is a picture-perfect reflection of what snowboarding in Helsinki is about”

Yes, yes and YES! This is a picture-perfect reflection of what snowboarding in Helsinki is about. First of all, the rails are gnarly AF – and there’s a lot of them. They also vary massively leaving us to believe that whoever’s responsible for the city’s architecture must have at least to some extent been exposed to snowboarding at one point in their life.

Secondly, the boys were blessed with the best snow in seven years, meaning they had the pleasure to visit the city at its coldest (and this means cold, as in very cold). Last but not least, they also paid a visit to one of our favourite Finnish resorts Talma, and the home resort to many sick riders including none other than Eero Ettala himself.

On the non-snowboard-related side, the boys had a go at ‘avanto-uinti’ which directly translates to ‘ice-hole-swimming’, a strangely common thing amongst the Finns. It’s hard to say if the boys were driven towards this action in a clear state of mind or if some of that overpriced alcohol was involved. However, they handled it like troopers.


‘Teamwork: Helsinki’ captures the brilliance of street riding in Helsinki in a 5-minute-clip remarkably well. If you haven’t yet gotten around to experiencing all the joys this street-snowboard-mecca has to offer, we’d suggest you book that ticket to Helsinki right about now.

Riders: Chris Grenier, Harrison Gordon, Seb Picard, Riley Nickerson, Zak Hale.
Video Credits: Skylar Brent.
