Jackson Lebsack went straight into the heart of a once-in-a-lifetime blizzard in the Austrian Alps.

On January 11, after an exhilarating day drive from the Italian Dolomites to the Tyrolean Alps, the luckiest skier of 2019 arrived in St. Anton, Austria. Jackson Lebsack experienced a warm welcome at Stop 3 of his two-month Epic Dream Job assignment. In fact, the ample snowfall (4.5 FEET) was so welcoming, it decided to keep him there for an extra day.

Here are the highlights from St. Anton am Arlberg, according to Jackson:
