We recently interviewed Joss Christensen; a Park City, Utah local who has truly made a name for himself. He finished 2nd in Slopestyle at the 2011 Dew Tour in Ogden, UT. Joss is a freshman at the University of Utah and a great all-around skier who enjoys throwing in artistic rail tricks and strong rightside rotations into his jumps. Joss is a Fischer Sports Athlete and currently rides on the Guru.

Triple threat Joss Christensen has steadily been making waves throughout the competition scene. One of three guys who compete in all three disciplines regularly, Joss is busy jetting around the world, stacking AFP points as he hunts down Gus Kenworthy for an overall title this year.

For the Park City-native it all starts with the sticks, and for that, Joss skis Fischer‘s Guru because it’s “amazing for for both pipe and slope. It’s super light and agile.” Coupled with the skis are the Fischer X17 bindings and the Soma X-110 boot which he likes as it “allows for more natural movement and power when jumping.” Joss is new to Fischer’s program as of last fall, but he’s been making good use of the gear.
