Urban Skiing Finland and Estonia with Sandy Boville
After the New Years, I packed my bags and headed across the Atlantic for urban skiing Finland and Estonia with the Level 1 crew. I met up with Shay lee, Jonny durst, Kevin Salonius and Noah Albaladejo in Helsinki, Finland.
When we first arrived there was barely any snow in Helsinki! That was fairly nerve racking, especially after flying half-way across the world. The first night there we started the ski trip off at Kevin’s home resort Serena. Serena has a small terrain park with 2 sets of rail features and a large jump all serviced by a rope tow. What more could you ask for in a park.
After waiting a few days to see if it would snow more in Helsinki, we made moves and decide to head North. We had heard of a town a few hours north which had a bit more snow, so we packed up our sweet rental van and hit the road.

We ended up staying there for a few days before heading back to Kevin’s house in Helsinki. After a day recharging at Kevin’s we ferried across the Baltic Sea to Estonia. We stayed in the town of Tallinn which had some amazing old castles and buildings, a ton of history.

We stayed in Estonia for the rest of the trip. It didn’t get to warm, which kept the snow around. Overall my first Europe trip was a blast! Be sure to check the segment out in this years flick. You wont be disappointed. Can’t wait to keep this season rolling!
