Magnus Ferry

I began my judging career in Freestyle skiing in the beginning of 2000s with the first EC mogul competitions in 2003 and have later also judged a lot of Freeski competitions with the first WC in 2009. I am currently the Technical Committee Chair for Freestyle Skiing in the FISU (International university Sport Federation) and was the Head judge at the Universiades in 2013 and 2015. As a teacher and researcher in sport science at the Department of Education at Umeå University in Sweden, and instructor on a numerous of national judging clinics, I think this platform is going to be a good tool for educating judges on all levels
