A Viking in his element -- Terje Haakonsen goes huge over the Nordic Sea at Lofoten during the very first Arctic Challenge in 2000. Look at this monster! says Armbruster about the sheer enormity of the quarterpipe. It's one thing to see some heavy snow-park constructions during a major event at a resort, but something completely different on one of Norway's northern islands -- far away from the mainland and way past the Arctic Circle. An unforgettable experience, all around.
