In the mystic forest of Northern Finland, where the reindeer roam freely, the 3Star Oakley Girlsessions gave female riders an opportunity to collect last minute ranking points. The crowd loved the sunshine and appreciated the high level of riding. The winner, Enni Rukajärvi (FIN) took home valuable 400 Swatch TTR points and $1000. Second place went to Heidi Paumola (FIN). Rounding up the Top 3 was Saana Pehkonen (FIN), with Agnieszka Rusin (POL) finishing in fourth.
Local Enni threw down some solid runs early on and went through to the finals as the top qualifier with her second run: a switch BS 180 indy to BS 540 indy to cab 360 FS grab on the jumps, followed by a rail section where she stomped a cab 180 on 180 off the butter box and switch boardslide on the kink box. She had already bagged some great results this season such as 3rd place at the 4Star Horsefeathers Pleasure Jam and winning the 2Star Finnish Snowboarding Championships the week before. Her winning run was a (huge) cab540 mute to BS 540 indy to switch BS 360 and cab 180 on 180 off to switch 50-50.
