New Tour Stops Announced for 2008!
Posted on 10/31/2007
The Salomon Jib Academy Tour is back for 2008! We’re coming to your local hill with more pro athletes and more Jib action!
The Jib Academy is a series of Slopestyle events for athletes 16 years old or younger. Each event is free for participants and includes coaching from Salomon’s best freestyle athletes on the globe. Riders will be put in to groups in the morning with pro coaches to session some of the best terrain parks in the country. Athletes will then vote for the skier in their group that they think should receive a spot in the afternoon’s final throw down.
Voting is based not just on skill, but attitude, sportsmanship, style, who is having the most fun, etc!
Now for the icing on the cake- Like last year, each winner from the US stops will earn a trip to Mammoth to ski and chill with the best freeski team in the world, Salomon! In Mammoth you will get to see what it’s like to participate in a private night shoot, live with pro athletes for a week and film in various projects! You’ll also find out which Salomon athlete has the best bowling game! It doesn’t get any better than this.
Salomon is pleased to announce our hosts for the 2008 Jib Academy! Drum roll please……………………………………………………………………………..
