Antti Autti’s ‘Arctic Lights’ – Svalbard Expedition

The second episode leading up to Antti Autti’s Arctic Lights documentary movie – it’s now available to pre-order on Vimeo – sees Antti and Finnish hombre Roope Tonteri set sail for the arctic island wilderness of Svalbard…

If this episode gets your juices flowing, you’ll want to make sure you’ve watched the first episode of Arctic Lights, where Antti and Japanese friend Keisuke Yoshida rip heaps of pow through the forests of Lapland.

Antti Autti is always thinking of was in which he can try to extend his season. For a long time, he has had a dream to go on a sea voyage to the west coast of Svalbard and, finally, in spring 2017 this dream came true.

Svalbard's the kind of place where you need to bring both a snowboard gun and an actual gun.
Antti and Roope. Probably wishing they had a gun each.

Together with fellow Finnish rider Roope Tonteri, they set the course to travel far up north while making brief stops to ride perfect spring snow in terrain where no one has left tracks before.

The views in Svalbard are not too shabby.

For Antti, the trip is not only about snowboarding. He had heard from locals about the constant change of nature in the Arctic and a large part of his wanting to undertake this trip was to go and see it with his own eyes. These stories force Antti to think about his actions as a professional snowboarder. Can a trip like this give a man new perspectives on a lifestyle which he has done for over half of his life?
