The Jib League is a concept that was cooked up by Oystein Braaten, Ferdinand Dahl and James Woods. It looks very much like the antidote to many modern ski contests; actual jam sessions and not even the faintest whiff of FIS.

Seven qualifiers from the Open Jam, which was open to absolutely anyone, met with 12 household names, plus the three founders at Skyline Park, Nordkette in Austria. There were three one-and-a-half-hour jam sessions, on three features (Kicker, rail and essentially a knuckle).

The riders had a rough-cut viewing of each session and then anonymously voted for 1st, 2nd and 3rd every evening. The scores from the sessions were added up and the week’s most well-rounded skier walked away with the entire  €10,000. To find out who that was, you’ll have to watch the video.
