Jossi Wells had one of the most successful competition ski seasons of any skier in recent memory. With a season that included multiple 2010 Winter X Games medals, a Dew Tour Cup, an Austrian Open win, a Snow Sports NZ Athlete of the Year award, and the launch of a signature webisode set to air on Fuel TV; the man flat out dominated everything he touched last winter.
Not one to slouch, Jossi hasn’t let up at all, as he knows better than perhaps anyone the dizzying rate of skiing’s progression, and hasn’t stopped training this summer. Relocating to his “summer” home of Wanaka, NZ, Jossi has been getting an early start preparing for the upcoming NZ Open, and even has his eyes on claiming medals for New Zealand in 2014.
As the 20-year-old New Zealand gears up for the start of the Southern Hemisphere’s new ski season, the man himself took a bit of time out of his hectic training schedule to reflect with “Winter of Wells” filmer Tim Pierce about his thoughts on the recently passed ski season.
