today I thought we would break it up a bit and dig into what I'm doing here and clapping and sort of where I see my ski career going for the next who knows how many years so I guess we can start with the main question why do I still ski and the answer to that it's pretty simple is because I love to ski I have found the love again that I used to have when I was 18 and I don't think there's anything that makes me feel better than skiing the the cool thing about where I'm now is that my body feels good and I can ski and just have fun without being in pain the last couple of years was it was a bit tough like my I blew my knee and I hurt my back and and sort of it wasn't when you body hurts it's not as fun to ski so I was kind of wondering like how long am I going to do this for like I I don't enjoy it like I wish I was in Monaco or surfing in Bali and things like that but now I love where I'm at so I guess a lot of people wonder are you a professional skier if you're not competing and I guess the answer to that is the definition of being a pro skier is that you make money skiing and ten years ago in order to make money skiing you had to win events to be on TV to give your sponsors exposure so they could sell products nowadays you can build an exposure platform with social media with Instagram YouTube Facebook and all this and so I'm not competing but yes I would probably call myself a pro skier and I think I'll probably won't do that the day that I feel that I can't do a double flip like if I'm just sort of skiing and getting exposure then no I'm not a pro skier I'm a blogger well I can do a double flip I I think I'll still call myself a pro skier but that's kind of why I'm here I want to be able to progress my skiing to a level where I'm sort of proud of what I'm doing and I want to be a pro skier so that's why I want to go up there and push myself I think what I did wrong over the last four or five when maybe even six seven years is that I was always on my own program I went to build these special jumps and spent a lot of time building the jumps and I think I lost a lot of joy in skiing when I did all that because now I realize when I'm back with a boy up here and just hanging out I realized that is the important thing like being up here with your friends skiing that is what makes skiing fun and when you're having fun you're learning a lot of stuff so I'm just super super happy to be out here with all the friends of course when you grow up there will be a lot of other things in life besides skiing I mean now I feel like I have six full-time job besides skiing so for me whenever I get to go skiing it's like a six hour vacation from sort of the the working life and I love doing all the things I do on the side but I don't think I would be able to handle it if I didn't have skiing cuz skiing when I get on the lift it's like oh I let every thought I have in my head go and just kind of live in the now so it's two different worlds and it's part of growing older but I love the fact that I have skiing to kind of balance everything out yes a competing wise I mean I've done a lot of contests in my life of done X Games I actually want X Games I did World Cup and ski racing and it's been really cool to see all of that and I guess the only problem with being a competitive person is that like am I happy with my competitive career and I wish I could say yes I am a hundred percent happy but then again I have never ever been 100% happy with anything I've done in my life but I think that is what actually got me to the point where I am now being able to live the life I do so yeah I mean i ieave dalat more than I expected but there's always more so I guess to sum it up you probably wonder how long do I plan on doing what I do now and how long am i planning on being a skier and to be honest if you would have asked me that two years ago I would have said maybe a year maybe maybe two and now after the last couple weeks feeling the joy I do again I'm like you know as long as my body can handle this I want to keep on doing this for as long as I can because it is when it is slushy there's nothing better than hitting a good Park jump so I might ski less in like October November December because Isis I hate ice I'd rather go surfing but I will try to search springtime and ski a lot more I mean that's kind of the reason why I'm up here in CLEP and skiing and not doing gumball because I I love it I'm like back I had to Stoke back again so uh I am very very happy with where I am in my life right now and I hope that skiing will be a part of it for a long time but in order for it to be that I need to grow bolts and keep progressing because that is really what pushes me every day Marcus I just got a notification to my phone we are gonna start the morning with Marcus first benefit of filming a video blog every day I got the diamond card with SAS that means I can give away a free gold card

    Great video Jon, I agree with you as long as you have your health and still enjoy what your doing, keep doing it. There will be a day when you know your done. When it comes think about what you want to do next. The sad thing is when you realize what comes out of your mouth is what I used to do and always reflect back to those glorious moments. You have to move on and make more of those moments. The difference is it was you in the past and now it is the next generation you can affect and help. Do not go into the grave thinking you have nothing. No matter how old you get you were something and there are other that may never have what you have but they want just a taste of it and their life is affected and you made an impact. That is also as important as your accomplishments with your life. At the end of the day no one cares what you did if it didn't directly impact their life. They will only remember who's number one for the day.

    hey jon. thanks for the insights!
    what do you think of candide? i mean he is the same age as yours and absolutely killing it with his videos.
    you are often complaining about icy parks.! why dont you spend more time in good, soft, deep backcountry? and build some awesome jumps with good friends. would be awesome!!!!!
    i like to watch you skiing park but its not so exciting anymore when 20 ski videos pop up on my instagram every day and 15-year olds throw triples. just my thoughts..
