Welcome to the world of Wappulounas!

Wappulounas is a snowboard-oriented spring festival held in the biggest Finnish ski-resort Ruka. It gathers the hottest names and rookies and everyone into great vibes to end a season together.

Three tense days of chilling, partying and meeting friends–old and new–and awesome riding in weird obstacles only found from Wappulounas: That’s what it’s all about! Add incredible after-skis and unforgettable after-parties with high-class bands and DJ’s, and you get the point. Party with your favorite snowboard-heroes and experience the best that Finnish springtime can ever be!

After over 15 years Wappulounas has gathered lot of media-attention nationally and internationally. With the co-operation with the magazines, websites and movies of the industry we’ve made our name. Wappulounas has been chosen as the best snowboard happening three times by the leading Finnish snowboard magazine Slammer.

Wappulounas is an authentic and respected lifestyle-event that can offer to it’s partners a credible marketing channel in a very challenging target-group.

CONTENT

One of the most important things about competitions at Wappulounas is that there’s no competing. The biggest snowboard icons and the most talented rookies are competing shoulder to shoulder – and just having fun. But that doesn’t mean you won’t see great riding: in fact it’s the best you can get!

That’s because Wappulounas can offer the riders something unique, something they can’t find anywhere else. That motivates the riders to push them to their limits. Imagine yourself in their position. They can do everything and everywhere, and once they’re dropped in front of something they’re never seen before it’s hard to keep them still. And that’s exactly what happens – every time. You won’t even see when the competition is on since everyone’s been ripping already.

Three days and three competitions equal three winners both in men’s and women’s, but the biggest is still to come. Although everyone’s having fun, still the overall winner gets something incredible: he gets to go to Bali, Indonesia on an all-paid surf trip by A Senne! That should get riders motivated, too.

AFTER-SKI AND AFTER-PARTIES

It’s hard to imagine a Finnish event without good parties – and why should one? There’s no reason a good day should end when the lifts close.

Wappulounas has always brought something different to after-ski culture. There’s been lot of great jams that sometimes has gathered players even from the audience. The magic-shows in Wappulounas are legends, just like bingo in Wappulounas style.

When the sun goes down it’s time for after-party. Great bands have been playing in Wappulounas, and they all think there’s the best audience and the best parties. Just ask bands like I Walk The Line, Anal Thunder or SMC Lähiörotat.

Music has always been in an important role of Wappulounas. There are the grooviest DJ’s and people just love good music. And they sure know how to party…
