Tom Wallisch throws down an Instabanger for SLVSH. (Newschoolers)
The SLVSH guys have been killing it on the Interwebs the past couple of years—creating a H.O.R.S.E-like game in which skiers go head-to-head, competing the same trick. If the second skier misses the trick, he gets a letter, until he misses five tricks—spelling out SLVSH—and loses. It’s simple and has gone viral in the freeskiing community.
Created by U.S. Freeskiing’s Joss Christensen (Park City, UT) and pro skier Matt Walker, there have been match ups including Tom Wallisch (Pittsburgh, PA) vs. Christensen, Chris Laker (Cincinnati, OH) vs. New Zealand's Jossi Wells and more. And that’s just from this summer at Perisher Resorts in Australia.
