Also this is such a retarded topic. Just ski for fucking fun, progress, compete at some local hill. Small comps in the beginning, rail jams, stuff like that. If youre good enough people will fucking offer you a sponsorship.
Dont ski to get sponsored, ski for fun and if you dont feel like competing, film yourself and send in a small edit (with no dubstep please) to some companies.
I friend of mine that rides for saga and rossignol told me that (for example) The head /leader/boss of for instance rossignol doesnt care if you send in a mail to him saying "Oh hey i can totally do triple cork 1620 octo grabz and 450 on 720 swap super-fed". That 50 year old family father sitting at his office ordering new skis for next season doesnt really get stuff like that nor does he care how sick tricks you can do.
He cares about how good you are willing to get and what ambitions you have for the future.
