    “Welcome to the first edition of The Summer Rail Challenge by me, Kevin Salonius. Since I built my first summer rail setup more than half a decade ago summer skiing in my backyard has been an important part of my life. It's not just the better balance and new tricks I've learned from hundreds of hours on the matting, but the good times I've enjoyed with my homies and memories I have. I've spent many summers with a jigsaw and old pallets creating new features and then trying out new tricks until I've dialled something fun and smooth enough to capture on film. I have always been really stoked on watching summer backyard rail edits, it's so fun to see all the creative setups and new trick combinations people come up with in their backyards. Summer contests have always motivated me to improve and I've always had a ton of fun thinking up new, creative ideas to film for edits.


    This past winter I've had the time of my life, I filmed with Level 1 in Finland and Estonia, I joined the West Coast Session at Timberline and that's just the start. Without skiing I would probably not have been able to travel to all the places I've been to the past winters, and I'm really thankful for all the things and experiences skiing has given me so far. So this summer I want to give something back to the ski community: I've gathered some insane prizes from my sponsors and I'm launching a rail edit contest. I hope everybody who continues skiing long after the snow is melted will take part.” - Kevin
