Past the chings and chimes of Reno slot machines, walk a few of the world’s most promising young skiers. After taking the top spot in their local Salomon Jib Academy events, a short drive from the Reno airport is all that separates them from arguably the most fun park event of the spring, the Salomon Jib Academy Mammoth Final. Over four days, these groms from around the globe will make Mammoth their personal playground. The skier at the end of the week with the best stuff will be crowned this year’s Jib Academy Champion and take home an array of prizes from Salomon including a paid-in-full trip to Whistler for summer camp. With the results coming in this evening, stay tuned to Powder.com for all of your Jib Academy needs.
