Julian Ball is a sports enthusiast who turned freeskier after he left university. After landing support from Liberty Skis in his first season where he competed at the Brits (British Championships) and managed to grab a spot on the podium in slopestyle. At that point he and Liberty's UK leadership saw potential and Jules pursued it further, and since then he has never looked back. Jules' quote that "a bad day on the hill is better than a good day in the office!" is something to which we can all relate. Julian has recently competed in some of Europe's biggest events. This year we were all stoked to see him win slopestyle at The British Champs and the Monoski World Champs at the ripe old age of 28. Now it's a case of keeping up with the youngsters and trying to remain competitive. This year Julian says that he is looking to push his boundaries in the backcountry and looking forward to filming some creative edits with Cabnine Films and Unity Productions.
