Lapland saw snow late, but since it finally started falling, the scenery has been changing at a rapid rate. It is hard to imagine that two weeks ago there was virtually no snow where these photos were shot. Two heavier snowfalls were followed by two days of no snow, which made for a firm base. As more snow kept piling up, we couldn’t help thinking whether the nearby mountains would be skiable already. Last Saturday was a clear day – the coldest day so far this winter. Mikko Lampinen and Antte Lauhamaa went for a trip to Kesänki mountain.
A photo of Arto Majava’s and Mikko Lampinen’s (Huippu’s photo editor) just made it to the hot-off-the-press December issue of the Powder magazine. And what’s the shot in question?
The picture on the cover of Huippu 2/13 was shot by Tero Repo in Antarctica. In addition to penguins, the photo shows world-class snowboarders Xavier De La Rue and Lucas Debari, whom we asked a few questions about the exotic moment.
