JHSC Freeride Program

Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club’s Freeride Program Athletes have been putting in overtime this past month.  When the Athletes aren’t pursuing academics and riding powder, they were in competition mode!  Our Athletes tested themselves at Snow King Mountain Resort’s International Freeskier & Snowboarding Association (IFSA) big-mountain competition.  Once again, the Freeride Program’s results did all the talking!

Shifting gears from big-mountain competition and powder riding, the Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club’s Freeride Program hosted their first Wednesday Night Lights Rail-jam series on February 24th.  Our Athletes came home to their local stomping grounds and sparks were flying as they had a great time competing with other local athletes.  Listed below is another amazing result page of Freeride Program Athletes.

Our Freeride Program is keeping our foot on the gas pedal as we enter March. We still have two more Wednesday Night Light’s Rail-Jams left (March 3, & 10) and then we’re off to compete at Grand Targhee in our regions final IFSA big-mountain event (March 12-14).

It doesn’t look like spring is ready to show its warm face – keep those powder boards out and that facemask on!
