Salomon Jib Academy Announces New Elements and Tour Stops

In its fifth season, Jib Academy bookends the continent with the most anticipated contest in the park.

02.04.2011– Ogden, UT— Salomon has announced its North American locations for the 2011 season of Salomon Jib Academy. Five ski areas in the U.S. and Canada will host young athletes in one of the sport’s most coveted opportunities to learn from Salomon pro riders and compete for the chance to attend a dream week at the Jib Academy North American Finals.

Internationally known as an unforgettable series of slopestyle contests for athletes 16 and under, the program is free to enter, and includes lunch, plenty of giveaways and a full day of shredding with Salomon pro coaches.

And, like last year, Salomon will hold an online video edit contest for skiers who can’t make it to any of the tour stops. The winner of the video contest, voted on by viewers, will earn a trip to Jib Academy Finals in Mammoth alongside winners of tour stops from around the globe.

For U.S. participants, it’s an East Coast/West Coast and video edit throwdown! New for the 2011 season in the U.S. are mini contests that cater to younger athletes, and a ladies-only event at the Whaleback stop.
