Unhappy with the current state of Open events, Jon Olsson and Simon Dumont teamed up with the Opens Freeski to put together the biggest Open skiing event we have ever seen.

With an entirely new judging format where skiers will jam on the course all day and be hand-picked by Jon, Simon and TJ, this is sure to be the most fun Open event ever… even if you don’t qualify.

I’ll let Jon, Simon, TJ, Peter and Colby explain the rest (and check out the schedule below). Here’s the video, Jon and Simon’s North American Open EXPLAINED:
