Joel Ahola / Backcountry Guide / Snowboard Coach

Be-happy-man Joel Ahola is a hot name in the snowboarding scene. Joel has shred for years and his riding style is just phenomenal. In the past years he’s been standing frequently on the podium and filming epic material together with other well-known snowboarders. Joel started his coaching career in Les 2 Alpes Summer Freestyle Camps 2015 and continued in Saas-Fee and Stubai, later in the Autumn. One of his dreams came true as he started as a Backcountry Guide in Hokkaido, Japan in winter 2015. Joel guides small groups in the resorts and backcountry nearby Niseko but also Central-Hokkaido region. Having Joel as a guide, you can build a kicker and land in the backcountry powder or have an amazing day riding Rusutsu Resort, where they have built Travis Rice-inspired SuperNatural terrain park in the forest.
