Think you’re the next Tom Wallisch? Prove it by entering the Level 1 ‘Superunknown’ contest

So often, we read about amateur skiers obsessing over their exhausting attempts to get sponsored, and to break into the lime-light via major contests. Rather then complaining about the difficulties of breaking into the pro ranks, do yourself a favor, and finally spend your time doing something productive to help your budding pro ski career.

Enter the Level 1 Productions ‘Superunknown’ VII video contest. This long-running video contest seeks to give one amateur the chance of a lifetime – to join the Level 1 Productions’ skiing crew and to star in future videos.

The contest has been largely responsible for lauching the careers of superstar pro skiers like Corey Vanular and MTV skiing star Tom Wallisch. 

To keep things fresh, and to seek out the most creative, yet skilled riders, Level 1 has added a couple interesting rules to shake things up a bit this year:

-Videos must be no longer than 2 minutes and 30 seconds. All videos any longer then this will be disqualified.

-Tricks cannot be repeated, whether they’re rail tricks, jump tricks, etc, show them one time only! Its fine to show something truly epic from a few different angles, but NO REPEAT TRICKS!

-25 switch-ups per vid, MAX! We’ll count ‘em, and if there are more then 25 switch-ups in your entry, you’re out!
