“I owe my riding to SheRide! They kept my passion and dream to be a big mountain freerider” – Jen Jones.
Jen is a snowboard competitor who competes in the International Freeskier and Snowboarder Association Freeride World Qualifiers 4* Tour, Big Mountain Freeride circuit. She has been competing for 4 years. Jen’s snowboarding goal is to make the Freeride World Tour. She enjoys riding all over the mountain, but really loves steep challenging technical terrain and especially loves cliffs. She also likes riding park and progressing in the park as much as possible. Jen uses the awareness of her surroundings, focus, and drive on and off the mountain. Snowboarding is her number one passion and her favorite mountain to ride is Snowbird in Utah. Jen is also training to be a pilot, power and glider. This training has helped her to conquer her fear of heights
While Jen was living in Alta, Utah and snowboarding at Snowbird she was inspired by her housemates who competed to compete herself. She attended a few SheRide Snowboard Camps in Durango, Colorado at Purgatory Resort. SheRide Snowboard Camp helped her to reach her dream of riding steep terrain. Her favorite camp was when she rode her very first black diamond and was able to conquer her fears. She also learned how to ride her first box in the terrain park at SheRide Snowboard Camp. She loved how the coaches were so understanding and supportive of everyone’s individual goals and made sure they did everything they could with their extensive knowledge and training to make sure their goals were met.
SheRide Snowboard Camp experience was, “Amazing! The support from the coaches is incredible. I still talk to most of the girls in my group and my coaches.” Jen Jones
