Wappulounas 2022 in Ruka

Wappulounas saw the daylight for the first time in 2001, so it has reached the respectable and experiential age of more than 20 years. From 2006 it has been organised in Ruka. Over the years, there have been numerous unforgettable moments, competition venues, performances, gigs and coincidences. The hugely popular digital to-do list was launched last season and is now being continued in a slightly redesigned format.

In the coming spring, the digital format will be combined with traditional racing, which will allow participants to complete tasks both in the form of a digital to-do list and in the Wappulounas banked slalom race arena. 
The arena is located near the Monomesta terrace, so both riders and spectators are promised an excellent setting.

There is certainly no shortage of momentum, creativity and spectacle in the event. Together with the Wappulounas soup-makers, Ruka's Playground creates special execution venues where teams can give their best to complete the to-do list. And best of all, the performances can also be followed via social media by fellow competitors and everyone else interested in creative snowboarding around the world. The Afterski program as well as the numerous live gigs at the Wappulounas afterparty will not leave the participants cold either. Simply the Best of Finnish Spring!

Program

Wappulounas will kick off on Thursday, April 28, when the WAPPULOUNAS BAG OF TRICKS task list will open for the riders to explore. The to-do list will remain open 48h until Saturday 30.4. This year with task list, quality will replace quantity. There will be fewer tasks than in the previous year and the jury will pay more attention to high-quality execution and filming. The to-do list will be completed in teams of 2-4 riders.
On Thursday, the Wappulounas Afterparty will start with Kätfish and Ursus Factory.

The Banked Slalom track, a classic snowboarding track with speed and smooth lines, will be built on the Pessari 10 slope and will open to Wappulounas riders on Friday 29 April. Time trials will be counted on the track on Friday. Visit the banked slalom track on your own time and look for a place in Saturday's Banked Slalom finals. And that's not all! A snowskate track will also be built on the Pessari 11A slope, where qualifying runs will also be ridden on Fri 29.4.
On Friday, the evening fun will continue on the Restaurant Piste, with Rosa Coste and Arppa offering their melodies on stage.

Wappulounas culminates on Saturday 30.4. with the final tasks from the to-do list and with the finals of the Banked Slalom and snowskate finals. The number of competitors who will reach the finals will be announced later when it is known how many riders will enter the start list. Afterski is organized on the brilliant terrace of the Monomesta, accompanied by the already locally legendary Instant Morgan band.

The award ceremony for the 2022 spectacle and the closing party with Asa Bäänd II will culminate this year's Wappulounas.

The best times from the Banked Slalom and snowskate races will be rewarded separately. In addition, the results of Banked Slalom will affect the points on the team's to-do list, so the final Wappulounas 22 winners will only be determined when the prizes are awarded.
