Three skiers. Five days. $10k on the line and an opportunity to impress the judges at any given moment. Things were bound to get wild at Quiksilver’s 2020 Young Guns Ski Final.
Daniel Bacher, Max Hitzig and Jack Lovely began their Young Guns journey by posting on Instagram and ended up all together for the final around Mont-Blanc Natural Resort in Chamonix, France. Simon Hillis was meant to join them but unfortunately injured himself warming up for the event. So then it was three — and, of course, the judges. Sammy Carlson and Twig Spensley, the Editor In Chief of Newschoolers.
The five days became a blur. The Young Guns sought and charged bold lines. They built kickers. They hiked into the backcountry and found cliffs to send. And then, of course, there was the heli-skiing day. It all flew by.
Before anyone knew it, it was the final day. Everyone ripped, but Danny’s style and creativity helped him stand out from the rest. Kid’s got a big future — that’s what Young Guns is all about.
