There are some locations across the globe that're ingrained so closely into the culture of snowboarding, that they become as important as the snowboarding that take place on their faces. Riksgränsen is one of those places. 

Nestled right on the eastern border of Northern Norway, Riksgränsen's place in snowboarding was established with the age defining arrival of Ingemar Backmann, and his stratospheric backside air in 1996, launching him, and his notice of intent, into now legendary status.

20 years later, the Riksgränsen King of the Hill was organised, and Terje headed northwards to hook up with the all time crew that were traveling from across the globe to be there.

Check out some of the footage from years previous, and the 2016 edition of the event featuring an all-time line up of riders getting sendy above the Arctic Circle.
