Freeride - January Newsletter

IFSA - Jackson - Registration Full

To be placed on the wait / alternate list:

The event will take place on Toilet Bowl off of Thunder Chair at JHMR. This is a great opportunity for local riders to try out Freeride competition on a slope they are likely familiar with in their own back yard. Freeride competition highlights the training we do on the Freeride Team, and it's a great opportunity for parents and friends to watch the local rippers in action.

Park City Report

After a long fall of strength and trampoline training, the JHSC Freeride Program is back on snow and ready for our competition season. This past weekend we traveled to the freeride hotbed of Park City, Utah for a couple days of skiing in the world-class terrain park at PCMR. Attending this trip were 4 veteran FRP athletes: Caleb Kern, Jake Johnson, Rocky Vertone and Jackson Santomauro. We spent a beautiful, sunny Saturday lapping the jumps and rails before heading to the Snogression Trampoline Park in SLC. This first-rate indoor facility provides us a safe environment to learn different rotations and axis combinations that can be taken to snow later on. 

      The next day was again perfectly sunny and calm, so we took full advantage of the conditions and got a nice early start to beat the crowds. Caleb was in perfect form, per usual, and brought his deep bag of tricks to the 55 foot table top. Jake Johnson showed that his off-season trampoline training has been paying off by stepping up to spinning over the big jump and adding new variations to his backside 360's. Similarly, Jackson Santomauro was adding new grabs to his 360s and looked to be ready for a long season of skiing park. Rocky Vertone has been on fire as of late, coming off a summer of airbag sessions and a fall of trampoline training at Axis Gymnastics. He brought his smooth style to the smaller jump and stepped up huge with a couple off-axis 720's and 900's on the larger table top. All 4 athletes are leaps and bounds ahead of where they were by this time last season, and with another PCMR trip scheduled for early January they are destined to continue their progression throughout the early season.
