The Arctic Challenge
2 x 52'
These are the masters of snowboarding. The Arctic Challenge captures the spirit and passion of snowboarding, one of the most dramatic and spectacular of all freesports.
Created by the one true legend of the sport, five times world half pipe champion Terje Haakonsen, the Arctic Challenge is a totally unique contest format - bringing together 30 of the worlds’ best riders in the worlds’ best conditions. The Arctic Challenge provides spectacular programming set against the backdrop of a beautiful island chain 250 miles inside the Arctic Circle.
High production value, largely 16mm, coupled with an ambient soundtrack and a documentary format- The Arctic Challenge is the most creative and awe inspiring snowboarding event ever created.
In the sequel, Haakonsen creates the largest quarter pipe ever built in the old Olympic ski-jump stadium in Oslo and then takes 20 of the worlds best snowboarders to Hemsedal, Norway’s’ number 1 resort for more stunning aerial half pipe action.
