Freeride Event Results: April 2022, National Championships!

IFSA North American Championships

As the season is winding down, JHSC Freeride athletes are competing in their final events of the season. The IFSA North American Championships (NorAms) went down April 6-10th at Big Sky, MT. This invite-only event represents the culmination of a season’s worth of hard work. It is the highest level of competition for junior freeride athletes in North America. 

Freeride Senior, Collin Schubert, made the cut and was invited to compete after a series of strong finishes all season. Collin ended up in 5th place with a strong run under the sun on day one. Unfortunately, the sun proved to be too strong and melted snow surfaces on every aspect at all elevations. The next day we woke up to brisk temperatures in the teens, leaving the entire mountain coated in a thick sheet of ice. Conditions were too dangerous to run finals, and the decision was made to count scores from just 1 run instead of the usual 2. Collin and I made the most of it and swapped equipment (I snowboarded and he skied) for finals day. 

Congratulations to graduating Senior, Collin Schubert, for a phenomenal year of competition and a strong finish with 5th place at IFSA NorAms. We wish you the best in whatever the future brings!—Head Coach Collin Rehm
