Freeride Program Athletes Make Notable Splash with IFSA Results!

JHSC Freeride

IFSA Competitor, Olin Brecker, eyes his line as he sends a toe side spray for all to see!

Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club’s Freeride Program, in conjunction with the International Freeskier & Snowboarding Association (IFSA) hosted a big-mountain competition at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) January 22-24th.  By far, the JHSC’s Freeride Program had the strongest presence on the winner’s podium.

The Freeride Program Athletes tested themselves in the most technical big-mountain event in IFSA’s Northern Region competition circuit.  Listed below are names of Freeride Program Athletes that moved onto day two of the event. See the full IFSA results list here.
