What a tough decision to make….  Next week the Europa Cup comes to Trysil.  Next week the Sweet Rumble big air comp also takes place in Trysil.  Jon Olsson want’s to do both.  Can  you think of the last time an athlete participated in a top level ski race and that night do a big air comp?  What an amazing talent.  If you haven’t heard, Jon is transitioning to ski racing.  He won the GS title in the NorAm Cup last year and is vying for a position on the 2014 Olympic ski racing team for Sweden.  The big air comp is a night time event after the race and i say, go for it!  As Jon likes to say, “I never do things the way you’re supposed to.”
