About Born Skier:I have had the provilege to be with BornSkier from the beginning. The concept is simply great. The amount of data is overwhelming. I hope that all the BornSkiers around the globe find their way to use the site.


After his successful period in the World Cup Telemark circuit he moved to new challenges as the reigning Finnish Telemark Champion. Tackling gates took too much time from real passion: mountains. Now he is on an endless freeride journey.

Jani is a schooled Adventure Filmmaker and CEO in a movie production company Forest Camp Entertainment.
His mission is to “Spread the Outdoor Word Out There”. That is achieved by participating R&D for outdoor brands, teaching on telemark camps, producing material for magazines, TV, etc. And most of all by being a good role model.

Did my time between the gates on Telemark World Cup. I was 10th in WC overall at my best. Won Finnish Natonal Titles.
Did ok in Freeride Comps. Won the Rip Curl Freeride in Les Arcs back in 2002. But in the end I am not much of a competitive person. So now I just ride for the fun of being on the mountains. Most important thing is that I´m alive. As a legendary French mountain guide once said: An Old Skier is a Good Skier.
