HIGHER – BIGGER – STRONGER
Jon Olsson thrilled Southtyrol!
The Swedish special guest – well known as skier, blogger, car enthusiast and product designer doesn’t miss the chance to come to Southtyrolean’s most famous Big Air festival.
Jon Olsson’s total Winter X Games medals are 9. The freeski legend invented at least four new flips and is founder of the “Jon Olsson Invitational contest” which is amongst the highlights of the freeskiing calendar.
He prefers to get to the slopes in super-powerful and super-pricey cars. His spectacular heliride to Kronplatz and the arrival to Kronplatz Air with his Audi RS 6 definitely proved that.
Olsson shows his product designer qualities in his travel gear brand Douchbags and his signature monochrome camouflage painted cars.
Jon now resides in Monaco, playing as hard as he works and shares every step of the way through social media and his blog.
THE WORKSHOP at KronplatzFUN
Meeting the big idol in the Snowpark Kronplatz was definitely one of the biggest dreams of most kids. Jon Olsson showed his unique style and impressed with his friendliness.
