(Disclaimer: Not skiing) But a great idea, specially for those that like to do/watch urban shredding!
ESPN is doing an edit contest for the Winter X this year, I'd love to see this carry over to ski as well. Anyway, you can check out the 8 videos and vote...$50k on the line...my favorite is Nic Sauve for sure.
Louif Paradises's shit was fucking nuts. I am wondering where X games gets off though. They are missing a few people I would consider mandatory for this little video contest. Like the entire Videograss ensemble.

awesome contest for sure. skiing could be alright but i think urban needs to diversify a little more. right now you have a lot of skiers doing the urban thing all trying to do the same style tricks, 270s, switch ups and some other stuff. this contest had a good mix of urban styles there was the hesh dudes, skate tricks, some huge gaps, technical shit etc that were all represented by different videos. i think the skiers might have a harder time mixing it up and keeping it fresh for a large audience and maybe thats why they didnt let skiers do this. i know people like max hill and will wesson are bringing new styles to the table but i think its a few more years before these catch on and really go in different dircetions/ ways of looking at urban.
Dunno how to post pics but is this where Jones got his inspiration haha. His edit was defiantly the worst that shit just looks retarded kinda like Travis Pastrana's bar spin on a dirt bike attempt lol. Other than that those those edits are sick
if skiing gets in, b-dog should be the 1st person to get an invite to this event

yeah that was weird. kind of pissed me off. plus the fact that I had to watch his commercial 8 times. anyways I definitly think skiing is up to this if you pick a variety of riders with different styles.

Johnnie Paxson is crazy for sure. But him and Valaika aren't X games caliber names yet even though they got the skills. I think Jed has blown up quite a lot though and was disappointed not to see him there. Sexton and Sauve were my two favs no doubt
