After 24 entries, four intense head-to-head rounds amongst the top 16 and too many sick edits to keep track of, the final round is over, the Salomon team has picked the winner, and the Salomon Online Jib Academy has officially come to a close. So without further ado, the winner is...


Kristaps Thompson!

Congratulations to Kristaps, who has won himself an all-expense paid trip to Mammoth Mountain, California for Salomon Jib Academy Finals in May, where he'll get to shred Mammoth's awesome park in the sunshine with his fellow Jib Academy winners and the Salomon team!


A big congratulations is also very much in order for the runner-up, Alex Brown, who made it all the way to the final round with his more than impressive style and a big bag of tricks. And because Salomon is so damn cool and thinks you're so damn awesome, they're going to be setting you up with a new pair of skis and bindings for next season!

Big ups to all the extremely talented kids who entered this contest (we can't even begin to explain how stoked and impressed everyone at Salomon and Newschoolers was), and thanks to everyone who took the time to for their favorites!

See you in Mammoth Kristaps!
