At the beginning of this winter, in conjunction with The House, we launched the most ambitious contest in the history of Newschoolers...The Best Skier On The Internet.
The Best Skier On The Internet Contest featured 7 rounds (Backyard Jib Jam, Urban Rails, Park Rails, Park Jumps, Backcountry/Big Mountain, Halfpipe and Slopestyle), where we asked you to upload videos of your best skiing in each specific category, so the Newschoolers community could determine who the most well-rounded skier is.
In order to win, you needed to enter at least 5 of the 7 rounds, as The Best Skier On The Internet Contest was run in the same format as the Association of Freeskiing Professionals uses to crown their champions, where your 5 best results count towards the win.
So without further ado, we're extremely excited to announce the winner of The Best Skier On The Internet Contest...
