On May 25th, the Sammy Carlson Invitational will be going down at Mt. Bachelor.
The course for the contest consists of a big air jump followed by a massive wallride transfer. This allows skiers to show off their big air talent, as well as show how creative they can get on a feature you don’t normally see in competitions. The format was the same for last year’s event, and it worked. The mix of air tricks and creativity is fun to watch. It’s always nice to see a contest that differs from a traditional big air or slopestyle competition. The athlete list is not typical of a normal contest, the big, heavy hitting slope-style names that usually lead most lists are paired equally with names you normally see in films. The atmosphere is laid back, the best skiers in the world are in attendance, and they are throwing down. We are excited to see the skiing that happens this weekend.
Sick Stickz is stoked to be able to support Sammy Carlson with his skiing, as well as athlete Willie Borm, who will also be at the event.
To get everyone stoked, here is the Re-Cap video from last year!
This was our first season working with Anatole Camelin, and we must say – we are very happy to have such a talented rider promoting our brand in Europe.
Please help Sick Stickz athlete, Vincent Prevost, win the Coors Light Challenge video competition. He is an up and coming French-Canadian skier. Click the link and help Vincent get some youtube views so he can win this video competition!

IGE Abroad just launched a new program in Vienna, Austria which will focus on the business of skiing. That’s right – you take a ski industry course on sales channels and distribution while also skiing in the Alps, visiting the Atomic factory, and each student is given a new ski setup (skis, bindings, boots, poles, and a ski bag)! Sick Stickz and Atomic are the two sponsors. The application deadline is November 1st. You can view all the details by clicking here.
If you are at all like us, then you most likely have snow on your mind and can’t wait to get back on skis. We want to see just how excited you are for winter to come.
We will be awarding a set of poles to the two people that can produce the best summer set-up edits. Below are the requirements and entry instructions.
- produce a summer set-up edit (skiing in your backyard or some other creative place)
- it can be of just you, you and your friends, or anyone else
- the edit must be 1 minute long
- post your edit on our Facebook wall
- get your people to vote for your edit by having them “like” it on the Sick Stickz wall
- the two edits with the most likes will each win a pair of Sick Stickz ski poles of their choice (dependent on what we have in stock)
The contest will run from August 22nd through Friday, September 2nd.
Jon Jay is an outdoor enthusiast and has been a brand ambassador for Sick Stickz for several years now. He just finished putting together a season edit so we figured we would throw it up. Enjoy.
