Yes! It’s returning on April 3rd – 7th and will be back in it’s home of Åre, Sweden. You and I both know that the Jon Olsson Invitational is an invitational event but Jon likes to open it up to the world with an online video qualifier. It’s what he’s done before and the skiing world is pretty pleased that he’s doing it again.
The first wave of video qualifiers has 5 spots available. These spots are for anyone that fancies a go. You can have a go if you’ve never been before or have been a part of it for the last 3 years, it’s open to literally everyone. The next 5 spots are only available to people who have never been to JOI before. Jon wants some fresh meat to grace the slopes.
So who’s on the list at the moment? Well…
