Since 2005, the Jon Olsson Invitational has cemented itself as one of the premier big air events in freeskiing. This year, Jon and JOI have announced the opportunity of a lifetime for two skiers. The concept is simple: one shot, one trick, one life-changing experience. Maybe you’ve been sitting on that one banger shot, or have that one trick you’re not quite ready to break out. Well, this is the time to showcase it to the world. You won’t get to where you want to be without taking a chance or two along the way – now’s the time!
All you need to do is upload a video of your best big air trick today to be entered into the contest. The winning contestants will compete in Are, Sweden on April 11th and 12th at the Head Big Air competition. This year’s lineup includes the biggest names in all of freeskiing, from Joss Christensen to Jossi Wells to Vincent Gagnier - and you could be there too!
Here’s what Jon himself has to say about the comp:
“The Head Big Air event has been the cornerstone of the event since day one, and our goal has always been to give the riders the best possible jump to enable them to land tricks that have never been landed before. This year we have seen some crazy stuff on the Olympics so we are sure that there will be some incredible stuff being thrown. The format this year is new as I wanted to make sure we keep the show in the event. Qualifying will take place on Friday where everyone gets 3 jumps. The best 16 riders will move on to the final on Saturday and the two best skiers will be guaranteed a spot in the super final. On Saturday the 16 skiers will be divided into pairs and we will run a head to head format until we reach the final. Then the two top qualifiers will join the two skiers that has moved on to the super final and they will all have 2 jumps where the best one counts.”
