Following the success of last year’s Peak Performance King of Style video qualification, the contest is back for another year to offer the latest skiing hotshots the chance to compete alongside some of the world’s top skiers.

Mirroring the format of previous years, four qualifiers will earn a spot in the main event at Stockholm Olympic Stadium on November 20.  However, the Peak Performance has made a couple changes to ensure this contest is even better; big news this year is that the top video winner will head straight into the finals and wont have to qualify at the Stadium.

Also new this year is that flights and accommodations will be provided for all four winners by the KoS organization. Organizers recognized booking a trip to Stockholm at the last minute can be tough for even sponsored riders, so they have worked to alleviate this concern, ensuring athletes can bring their A-game to Sweden.

Once again, the video qualification will run through YouTube. Entering the contest is simple – post your best 60-second edit and name it using the following format: “Peak Performance – KoS10 – Your Name.”

Taking a look at last year’s winners Nick Martini, John Strenio, PC Fosse, and Ian Cosco; winners shouldn’t be surprised if this contest propels them into the ranks of super-stardom along with these previous winners.

Who knows maybe someone from this year’s batch of qualifiers will finally knock those Norwegians off the top podium spot this year?
