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 Revelstoke 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 Revelstoke. 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.

Feeling creative? Good, because Quiksilver is giving $1000 USD to the most creative entry, regardless of skill level. So have some fun and show us what you got.

You can enter as many times as you’d like. The crew at Newschoolers will be your official #YGSKICONTEST judges, which means they’ll watch every entry and hand-pick their faves. Their top 8 will move on to the voting stage of the competition.

And a quick heads up: If you’re not under the age of 18 on March 10, 2019, then sorry old man, you’re out. On the flip side, you need to be 13 on November 30, 2018 to qualify.

Participation is subject to the Official Rules.
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 17, 2019. 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 Revelstoke.
If you made the Top 4, then we’ll help you get to Canada to meet up with our judge and the rest of the finalists. You’ll spend one day riding the park. Then you’ll spend one day 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 Revelstoke. It’ll feel like you’re there with us — just maybe warmer.
