Following yesterday's US Freeski kit unveiling, FIS and the German park building company Schneestern released pictures of the plan for the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympics. The Olympics will be held this coming February in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

So what are everybody's thoughts? I know especially with the jumps, it really all comes down to the final product in snow. Schneestern are no strangers to big events though. They build Suzuki Nine Knights which is one of the most creative works of snow every season. Schneestern built a test event course 2 seasons ago that was very well received with both athletes and viewers. They've also done some big photoshoots, Air+Style, X Games Oslo, and build several parks throughout Europe.

I can't wait to see pictures throughout the build, and eventually watch the event. The setup has some very creative options and I'm excited to see what lines some of the riders will choose. Hopefully the judges reward those who send some risky and creative lines. We shall see. Only 100 days out! Hype train engage!
I'm feeling very Olympic today!
