How does it work? We call each athlete on the phone and ask ’em 10 questions. The Rules: This is a battle of two minds. No physical prowess necessary. Cheating not allowed. No Google, no Wikipedia, no smart friends. No set time limit, but don’t take forever, it’s not rocket science. Points are awarded at the discretion of FREESKIER staff. In the event of a tie… well, it’s a tie. Winner does not move on, this is a one time deal. Stay tuned to see who competes in the next edition of Jibardy.
