Jackson Hole has molded me into the rider I am today. Its unique, steep, and natural terrain that helps my snowboarding improve in ways I never thought it would. My family moved from Vermont to experience these mountains and ride the terrain that JHMR has to offer, ever since we moved we have fallen in love. I've been riding Jackson since I was seven, starting on Apres Vous to cruising around the backcountry and really understanding what the whole place has to offer. I'm stoked to represent the mountain that I love to ride.
