Enni Rukajarvi has dominated the Finnish halfpipe and slopestyle nationals which provided some high-level riding in both contests.

The 2014 Olympic slopestyle silver medallist came out successful of both finals staged in the Vuokatti, Finland on the first weekend of April beating Anni Halonen and Kristiina Nisula in the halfpipe contest while Nisula and Ella Klemola rounded out the slopestyle podium as respective second and third placed rider.

On the men's side of things, Markus Malin defended his 2015 halfpipe title ahead of Henri Laakkonen and Janne Korpi earning his career's second.

Ville Paumola, who made the world sit up and take notice of his skills finishing third at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Games test event last February, earned his career's first national championships gold in the slopestyle competition ahead of Rene Rinnekangas and Mikko Rehnberg.
