About the Jossi Wells Invitational

The 3rd annual Monster Energy Jossi Wells Invitational Big Air is sure to be a highlight of the 2018 winter season. This time we are showcasing not only our famous Big Air jump, but including the Halfpipe & Terrain Parks too! Expect to see the most progressive skiing & boarding, with all the latest tricks thrown down! 
Jossi & his brothers Byron, Beau-James & Jackson bring together the world’s best riders at their home mountain, Cardrona Alpine Resort, Wanaka, New Zealand. This year Jossi has switched up the competition format to include Park Rail, Halfpipe & Big Air disciplines scheduled over four days. Riders jam daily for 3 hours in each arena with the combined scores determining who steps to the top of the podium.

Check out the preview from the 2016 Invitational

The invited athletes will be throwing down in practice from September 11 - 14. Each athlete will be scored on a new format which combines their halfpipe, rail & big air score for an overall placing. 1st to 3rd will be awarded in each division, with an additional rider voted Tom Campbell Award (MVP). An awards presentation & after party are scheduled in Wanaka the night of the finals.

The JWI is a unique competition with a friendly & welcoming kiwi style. The event is live streamed & always draws a crowd.

Keep an eye out on the Cardrona Facebook & Instagram, as well as the Cardrona Parks Facebook & Instagram for all the important JWI updates!
