SALOMON JIB ACADEMY
Today, kids are going bigger, younger thus Salomon has created the Jib
Academy to provide the best skiers around the world the opportunity of
a lifetime: to ski, shoot and film with the Salomon Pro Riders. The Jib
Academy is a learning experience, a chance for every kid to see what
they can accomplish today and tomorrow. It is not a competition, not a
talent search, not a camp; it is the Jib Academy.Various countries will
host qualifying events where kids ages 10-16 will meet up with us in
the park to show off and improve their skills on jumps and rails. Once
onsite, they will be put into groups and coached throughout the day by
their countries’ park heroes. Finalists with the most potential will be
chosen by the kids and their coaches who will battle it out in 2 runs
for a spot to the national finals. Photographers, cameramen and
journalists will be at each event to shoot, film and interview the kids
while they throw tricks to the sounds of a DJ spinning what’s hot. The
kids will get a chance to view their best segments and photos at the
awards ceremony at the end of the day.
WIN A TRIP TO MAMMOTH!
The winner or winners from the national finals will win a trip to
Mammoth to enroll with the best riders worldwide! They will all meet up
at the end of the season in Mammoth, USA to spend a week riding the
best park in the US with Mike Douglas and the Salomon International Pro
Team. The week will be filmed by well-known movie producers with the
best images being selected for the Jib Academy segment in our Salomon
Adrenalin Hunters film as well as other film segments!
