"If you can’t do it at Vail, it doesn’t happen on snow"–SKI Magazine
Nighttime Big Air - US Free skiing Open
"The Big Air Contest is just that, BIG AIR. This contest is a little
bit different in that skiers are matched up, and jump head to head in sudden
death battles. The judges vote on the best jump and the winner moves on. The Big Air event
is held Saturday night under the lights. Sixteen guys are slated in a head-to-head format with the winner advancing.
Last year there were some great match-ups and some even better jumping. The story of the night was complete unknown Andrew Woods. He stuck five 1260s in a row to take the victory. Jonny Moseley, Phillipe Belanger, and Vinnie Dorion put up a great fight landing tough tricks including Moseley's first ever in competition Dinner roll 1080, but was unable to land a trick against Swede, Jon Olsson who moved into the finals only to face Woods and his insane 1260. Woods took the win sticking his biggest 1260 of the night, with Olsson in second." -ESPN
