If there is one type of competition in freeskiing right now that we can all relate to, it’s SLVSH. There is nothing more enjoyable than trying new tricks in the park with your mates.
However relatable the sentiment is, the technicality and progression shown in these online duels consistently leaves us dumbfounded. The level of all these battles is incredible, but every now and then there is one that stands out. One game that springs to mind is one from 2015, when bright-eyed rookie Evan McEachran took down freestyle heavyweight Russ Henshaw in Perisher, the game was so long it went for two days. Since then there have been a handful of standout games, and earlier this week we were served another juicy helping of progression.
In this Scandinavian showdown, rail wizard Jesper Tjader and Emil Granbom push each other to new heights. This is certainly the longest game of SLVSH in recent memory, the video file alone is over 26 minutes. What a way to start the SLVSH Cup Grandvalira, if upcoming games are anywhere near this standard, it’s going to be a sweet competition.
So, kick back, relax, put the assignment on hold for 26 hot minutes and enjoy some video-game skiing madness.
