Wille Yli-Luoma -- who was part of the first wave of Finnish snow killers that included Jussi Oksanen and Joni Malmi -- ridies a hand-made terrain park in Tahoe back in 2002. "Next to the road on the way to Truckee, this crew had built a little park in their backyard where this unexpected session took place," says Armbruster.
