Young guns Ski
Got what it takes?
Got skills? Got style? Got the clips to prove it? Then let’s ride. With the help of Newschoolers, Quiksilver is going on a digital mission to find the best under 18-year-old Young Guns on the mountain. We’re taking four finalists heli-boarding in Chamonix and the winner is leaving with $10k. Take a look at our Official Rules, then strap in, go big and get your best clips ready to roll. It could be you!
"That chunk of metal in your hands? That’s your ticket to Chamonix. Post your best original clips on Instagram, tagging @quiksilver and hashtagging #YGSKICONTEST. There are no guidelines on what to post and no preference between park or backcountry. It’s just you, your skis, some frozen water and a world of opportunity.

Top 8
Grab a pen. Grab a calendar. Then throw both of them out and go skiing — but you still need to commit this date to memory: Jan 22, 2020. That’s when our official #YGSKICONTEST judges will make the call and the #YGSKICONTEST Top 8 will be announced.
Top 4
Survived the first round? Nice work — you’re one step closer to the final.

The top 8 contestant’s clips will be posted on Quiksilver’s Instagram stories for voting. You’ll need to get your family, friends, fans and maybe even foes to vote for you by heading to @Quiksilver.

The Young Guns with the most votes will move on to the final along with three extras that the crew at Newschoolers will hand-pick. After that, it’s off to Chamonix.
If you made the Top 4, then we’ll help you get to France to meet up with Sammy Carlson and the rest of the finalists. You’ll spend some time in bounds. You’ll spend some time out of bounds. You’ll spend some time in the park and you’ll go heli-skiing in the backcountry. Then, if you’re lucky, we will be handing you a check for $10K. Didn’t make the final? Didn’t even enter? Don’t worry, we still got you covered. We’ll bring you live updates from Chamonix. It’ll feel like you’re there with us — just warmer, probably.
