SofaKingSicki just wish he'd gotten into big mtn shredding instead of racing and cars and shit but whatever it's his life
He actually has a good big mountain segment in Seven Sunny Days, the MSP movie that came out in the fall of 2007. He also won a big mountain contest in Sweden, I forget what it is called. Jon can definitely ski big mountain. But I do agree that I wish he had focused on that after he was done with park instead of going into racing. Don't get me wrong, I love racing, but it would have been cool to see what Jon could do if he really dedicated himself to big mountain. Henrik Windstedt and Jon were always lumped together, both Swedish guys who made enough money to make it worth it to move to Monte Carlo. I always liked Henrik better because he was a better big mountain skier. Henrik became one of the best big mountain skiers in the world, he won the FWT in 2008 and his segments in In Deep, The Way I See It and Attack of La Nina are nuts. He has not been as visible lately, but Henrik is on the short list of the best skiers ever to step foot on the planet. Jon could ski big mountain, and he had great technical ability on skis. I completely agree that it would have been nice to see him go that route. But whatever, the guy still did a ton for skiing. I remember seeing someone on here trying to say that Tom Wallisch had more talent on skis than Jon. People can define Talent how ever they want,but I would strongly disagree with that statement. Jon was a great park skier, an excellent big mountain skier, and a racer who might have been able to go to the Olympics if he had not gotten into park skiing. Wallisch is great in the realm of park and urban, but he definitely does not check all those boxes.
I was in Monte Carlo for a few days in the summer of 2016. It was fun. The clubs and casinos were a blast, the food was good, and the women were insanely hot. I can see why a young, good looking pro skier with millions would want to spend his off-seasons there. If there were only waves there it would be even better.
