Some people call this movie « the best ski movie ever ,» and even you don’t agree, you’ll still probably put it in the Top 10, thanks partially to Jon’s epic session with Tanner Hall at Chad’s Gap.
2006 : « Ski Porn ! » was a hell of a movie, and Jon’s segment was on point.
2007 : In 2007 the Jon Olsson Invitational was already a legendary event. The video offers a great look back at what freeskiing was like at this time.
2008 : Probably one of his best victories …
2009 : Jon’s always been stoked on both freeskiing and racing, but he’s about to turn fully to the shitty one… oops, did I say that ?
