JON'S BIO
Jon Olsson, born 1982 in Mora, Sweden, is arguably the best all around new school free skier in the world. He is a trained ski racer, former member of the Swedish Jr. National alpine race team, and since the age of 16 a professional free skier.

In addition to appearing regularly in international ski magazines and the most prestigious ski films, Jon has racked up numerous wins in all disciplines the world over. His accolades include a nomination for Male Skier of the Year at the ESPN Action Sports and Music Awards (2002) and was the winner of the Powder Magazine Reader Poll and Video Awards (2003).

At the most prestigious Action Sports Event in the World, The World X Games, Jon double medaled in both Slopestyle and SuperPipe, making him one of two athletes at the to double medal four years in a row ( 2002-2005). This also makes him tied with Tanner Hall for the most skiing medals at WX (8).

Not only is he a new school freerider, Jon is also recognized as one of the best all around skiers in the world, something he confirmed once again when he won the prestigious Scandinavian Big Mountain Championships in Riksgränsen, Sweden in May 2004. In addition to spending ample time in front of the camera for productions such as Poor Boyz and Matchstick Productions, Olsson hit the regular competition circuit and won the Slopestyle at the US Open in Copper Mountain 2007

Jon Olsson is one of the best all-around skiers--and one of the hardest working--in the industry. This Swede continues to show that hard work does pay off, and his own event, the Jon Olsson Invitational, is one of the most coveted in the world.

Jon is a true superstar, and his interest in fashion and style has made him an icon on and off the hill. Jon has been featured in ads in fashion magazines and in 2005, he walked the catwalk alongside supermodel Helena Christensen. Jon was also named one of Sweden's sexiest men by Elle magazine.

But it is his signature, super smooth skiing style that will make him a legend.
