22-23 Alpine Program Wrap Up
With the U14 Team returning from Speed Projects/Races at Palisades Tahoe and Mammoth, California, this month, the Alpine Program has officially wrapped up the 22-23 season. Congratulations to the U14 Team for taking the season the furthest into the Spring out of any other program: they had great conditions to race and learn techniques and tactics at a couple of new venues among the best in the West!
Congratulations to our Spring Project attendees:
Three athletes were invited to the U14 Western Region Spring Speed Project at Palisades Tahoe: Charlie Ryan, Charlie Lighthart, Ashton Ritter.
They went on to join another 7 teammates at the U14 Spring Speed Series at Mammoth: Hennessey Van Gelder, Maia Zorkendorfer, Ruby Lindell, Hayden Robinson, Kai McBride, Bard Barnett, Andrew Overbay.
A huge shout out goes to the Moe sisters, who BOTH qualified for the Whistler Cup in Canada! The Whistler Cup is a prestigious international youth event that the top U14s & U16s from over 20 nations attend to test their skills among the best in the world! It is typically the athletes' first opportunity to race at an international level. Taylor finished 2nd in Super G and 5th in Slalom!
In the past 2 weeks, the U14 and U16 teams celebrated their seasons with end-of-the-season awards dinners!

FIS Team: April Races
The FIS Team took advantage of the amount of snow around the western US to travel to races out of division. Most of the team went to Palisades Tahoe, California, for a Spring Series and a few traveled to Aspen, Colorado, for a Spring speed series!
Carey Ritter, Taylor Glick, and Avery MacMillan all pushed out of the start gate for the last time with the Club while at Palisades! All three of these wonderful ladies are hanging up their boots after many years of commitment, fun, life lessons, friendships made, and successes along the way! Thank you to our graduates for being amazing role models for the future shredders of the JHSC! You will always have a home here at the Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club, and we wish you the best of luck in wherever the path leads you next!
The 23-24 Season is about to begin!
U16 & FIS Spring Dryland begins May 1
Dryland will take place after school, Monday–Friday, to get the body and mind re-engaged in physical fitness and to equip ourselves to maximize Spring & Summer on-snow camps. We offer spring & summer dryland for all athletes that will be U16 and FIS level in the upcoming 23-24 season!
