Level 1 Productions
Other skiers, including Tom Wallisch, L.J. Strenio, and Nick Martini, may have jibbed more difficult and dangerous rails and objects. But Quebec native J.F. Houle showed the most style with a switch 270 to wall ride in Level 1’s After Dark. Shot at night, Houle skis into the lip and styles out the trick and stomps the landing. It’s his first Powder Award despite being nominated for Best Jib in years prior. At a time when skiers continue to push the limit and danger meter of urban skiing, Houle shows that style still matters.
