Level 1 began its Superunknown contest in 2004, and since then we’ve seen hundreds of amazing video submissions from talented skiers around the world. While the winners of the contest have gone on to enjoy much success, many of those who didn’t take top honors have also graduated to bigger and better things. From award-winning film segments to X Games medals and Olympic appearances, Superunknown has been instrumental in catapulting aspiring pro skiers into the public eye. In honor of Superunknown XI finals, which get underway this week at the Summit-at-Snoqualmie, we’ve compiled some statistics about past Superunknown losers.
