Forrest Camp 2012
Forrest Camp was again held in Pikku-Syöte, Finland. Back side of the hill was the place for a tree skiing competition, stop two of the Treeride World Tour. Judges look at each run and give points in some scale, similar to freeride competitions. My brother is taking this seriously and participating in the whole tour, with support from Armada Finland, and won this events ski category. Young gun and Iso-Syöte Freeride 2012 winner Väinö Löytynoja was second and I modest third on skis. Snowboarders where jibbing a bit more with trees. Here's the official video summary of the event.
They also shot some nice pictures. Here are two of me:
Final of the tour is in Tamokdalen in few weeks but I think I'll skip it this time and ski Tirol instead. Hopefully we get some late winter storms and new snow as well.
