We are really proud to announce that our skier Jess Sterret took the 1st place at the North American Junior Freeskiing!
Snowbird, UT – The Snowbird Sports Education Foundation (SBSEF) hosted 231 junior (ages 12-18) athletes from 26 freeride teams last weekend for the North American Junior Freeskiing and Snowboarding Championships presented by Anon. The top ski and snowboard freeride athletes from the U.S. and Canada convened at Snowbird to compete on the world class Silver Fox venue.
Saturday night the athletes, parents, coaches, and judges gathered at the Cliff Lodge to celebrate the end of the season with live music and an awards ceremony to announce the 2014 championship event winners as well as the 2014 IFSA Champions. Stohke Productions provided $2000 in scholarships to the winners in each overall category. Nine additional sponsors provided prizes for the top five finishers.
“IFSA and SBSEF would like to thank our event sponsors Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort, SBSEF, Anon, Stohke Productions, BCA, The North Face, Discrete, Dynastar, Jones Snowboards, Never Summer, Nitro SnoBrdCo and Milo Sport,” said Rob Greener SBSEF event director.
