Over the past couple of winters, Enni Rukäjarvi has asserted herself as one of the best female snowboarders in the world and while doing so, has amassed a collection of shiny hardwear, including an X Games gold and silver, as well as a silver medal from the Olympics in Sochi. While Enni has staked her claim on snow with 720’s, off hill she’s listening to seven inches, with a personal soundtrack that has the energy to amplify her abilities on slopestyle courses the world over. From the moment she entered the competitive arena, Enni has let her riding do the talking. In this edition of White Noise, she trades in podium medals for triangle studs and lets her musical preference provide the melody. So check out her favorite snowboarding songs, add a few to your playlist, and while you may not be able to throw down like this lady does on massive booters, these tunes will definitely add to your street cred.
