IFSA U12 Championships

(Alta, WY – March 26, 2017) It has been a great season for these young athletes and the future of freeskiing. All their practice has come to an end at the US IFSA National U12 Championships. The past two days consisted of incredible lines, strength, creativity, confidence, fluidity, technique, control, and style as these skiers and riders navigated through the natural terrain off of Peaked Mountain. Athletes came from across the country to participate in the National U12 Championships at Grand Targhee Resort. The 2017 US Under 12 Freeride Overall Champs were also crowned today. Congratulations to all of these young athletes for another great season! Than you to all the parents, coaches, and events crew for another successful season. We’ll see you next year!
