In case you want to forget all about the midterm elections -- you can watch some Finns snowboard. Why are they snowboarding down stair rails? Well, there aren't many big hills in Finland.
I believe some of this video is shot at Saariselkä. We went to the ski resort Saariselkä in February and climbed to the top of the mountain over and over dragging our sleds. You can see some of our pictures here.
The best part of the video is the music by the Danish singer Emma Acs.
Perhaps you could play her catchy tune while watching this video shot by daring Americans in Saariselkä. I am sure the Duudsons got their start by plowing into their mothers!
PS Chris said that the Finnish stunt snowboarding reminded him of Meathead films (ski the East--lots of ice) so I am attaching a link to Meathead films.
