JON OLSSON. why?
A true OG in the sport of ski racing (unlike candide, tanner)
Superpipe God, back in the day (X Games Gold!)
Innovator at Big Air, with Kang, swDub1080, etc etc.
The man at slopestyle over the years
Dammit, I forgot to mention,
BIG MOUNTAIN, apparently he won the Scandinavian Champs a while back. NBD
Well every 4 month or so these threads comes along and I always fide them interesting – basically because how do we judge a good skier? What criteria(s) do we set; is the skiier innovative, is there a unique style, is there an impact on the industry, technicality, movie parts, competitions and so on.
If you just want the best skier right now and only base it on your ability to ski, then we should make a 3 part competition with a slope style comp, a race (like a FIS GS) and a big mountain comp.
Then someone like Jon, Windstedt, Candide, maybe Bode Miller might win.
If you want innovation, style and impact then it might be someone else.
What are we looking for in the best skier out there?
Sorry for my spelling I’m Scandinavian
Enjoy your weekend guys
