Freeride Program - February Newsletter
Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club’s Freeride Program wraps up a very successful January with both a USASA and an IFSA home competition. After a five-year hiatus, the USASA rejoined forces with the Freeride Program and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort to host a slopestyle and rail-jam competition in early January. The Freeride program had the strongest presence on the winner’s podium, and even had multiple podium sweeps!
Once our athletes wrapped up their USASA event, the snow started falling and we shifted gears to focus on our big-mountain event two weeks later. In conjunction with the International Freeskier & Snowboarding Association (IFSA), the Freeride Program and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort hosted a big-mountain competition at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) January 21-23. As ordered, the storm settled the day before and the skies cleared. Athletes could be seen from throughout the region competing in toilet bowl / paint brush Saturday and in Tower-3 for finals on Sunday. Listed below are names of Freeride Program Athletes
Moving Forward, our athletes are gearing up to hit the road and travel to Sun Valley, Idaho to compete in a USASA boardercross and slopestyle event. Additionally, some of our older athletes will be blazing over Teton pass to compete in an IFSA Junior National event at Grand Targhee. Think snow and follow us on instagram at jhscfreerideprogram to have live updates of what our athletes are up to.
