Jon Olsson Super Sessions

jon olsson super sessionsIn the past, Jon Olsson has held his signature invitational, JOI, upon feeling he had completed the task of reinventing big air comps he decided to step it up and create the Jon Olsson Super Sessions, or JOSS.

The idea is similar to the JOI, but differs in the fact that the event is held over a longer period of time and there are five different features instead of just one big-air kicker. There are 8 of the world’s best skiers, filmers, and photographers invited and 2 more spots in each of these categories is being chosen by Jon via submissions. In the end 10 of the best skiers, filmers and photographers will compete in an 11 day session for $20,000 in cash and prizes. The winner will be determined by professionals in each of the 3 fields and awarded the $20,000. Here is a list of invited riders and their filmers and photographers.

Once all videos and slide shows are judged there will be a 2 part video open to the public. Part one; a behind the scenes look at the competition and a compilation of the 10 rider segments and slide shows. During the competition there will be daily updates available at josupersessions.com and other news pertaining to the contest. This is a new type of contest that will display talent and progression within the sport.
