The Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club would like to congratulate all of our graduating seniors from the class of 2016.  Whether the 15/16 season was their first with JHSC or the end of an era, we are proud to have had them involved with our programs and excited to see where the next chapter of life takes them.  Good luck and godspeed to all of you!

Quote: "right on Bucky" -coach Mike Syrovatka

Hannah Cackler, Snowboard Progression Team
Plans for next year: Taking a year off to work and find myself before going to Colorado Mountain College in Steamboat Springs Colorado to major in resort management.
JHSC Highlight: Placing top five at nationals and getting an invite for Rev Tour. This is definitely the superficial highlight though. To me the highlight of my four years on the snowboarding team happened this last year in Park City. It was my last competition to a rough season, physically and mentally. After I stomped two of my runs and was standing at the van with Noah and Andy, Andy was smiling and laughing and Noah said that he hadn't seen Andy that happy and Andy just smiled again and said "As long as she's happy, so am I." I would just like to say thank you to all of the coaches for being more than just the coach of a sport that tells you what to do and sends you on your way, but you have all been there in a personal way for the kids you train.
