Episode 5. Uploaded by DewTourLive. Roope Tonteri has been an established pro snowboarder, as well as a winter Olympian, for the past ten years. What you might not know is that he’s also a very accomplished skater. In 2019 Roope decided to make a push for the chance to represent Finland at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, which would make him one of only two athletes to attend the Olympics for both snow and skate. With qualifying competitions pushed back, Olympics postponed and the world on pause due to the global pandemic, we decided to check in with Roope to see what his days are looking like lately. Since we couldn’t fly a film crew out to Finland to hang out with Roope for a day, he was down to flip his camera to selfie mode instead, showing us how he catches his breakfast, what working on his parents’ farm is like, takes us on a skate session with the homies and more.
