Shortly after announcing he was back on snow and ready to go for it all at Pyeongchang, Jossi has dropped a bombshell on us all: he will not be competing in the 2018 Winter Olympic slopestyle event.

I know I'm not the only one who is devastated by the news that everyone's favorite Kiwi from everyone's favorite ski family will not be there to throw zero spins for the people or whatever mad things he would have conjured up on that course. As unfortunate as this is, I'm stoked to ultimately see Jossi back out on snow soon competing and doing what he does best.
