ThaHaterHow do you make a million dollars skiing?
Start with two.
Jon Olsson didn't make his money skiing, he inherited it. This is a rich white person sport, most of your top pros aren't from the streets like they like to portray, they're from rich mountain town communities.
Jon has made a ton of money. He might have inherited some but he is a huge star in Sweden and Red Bull/J. Lindberg and some of his other sponsors make big money. If he inherited money please provide a link. He has legitimately made some cash.
Most people who live in mountain towns are not rich. It is the people who own those homes who are rich, not the people who actually live in the towns. Mountain towns are not rich communities, the vast majority of the people who live in Tahoe don't make much money and will never afford to buy a home there.
Some of the guys mentioned in this thread are making multiples of 100k. There are guys who have legitimately made 7 figures and Jon is one of them. Candide makes a lot too although I don't know if he is quite in Jon's class.
Most pros make very little, but there are some guys who have made some cash.
