      The up and coming self-starter Jessika Jenson started doing competitions at age 14 at local Idaho resorts, namely Kelly Canyon and Grand Targhee. With appearances at every possible open event, Jenson began climbing the ranks and mingling with other talented riders. Over the last two seasons she has battled a number of injuries, but she still found solid results with her unique tricks, including a floaty frontside 720.

      Jenson ended her season on a high note with a first place finish at the Billabong Flaunt It Finals. She made her World Cup debut at the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix and placed within the top 10 at the FIS World Championships.

      JESSIKA SAYS
      I had such a fun, progressive season training with the U.S. Team! I'm really looking forward to this Olympic year! My goals are to work hard physically, as well as mentally, to train to be the best I can as I prepare for the upcoming Olympics. It'd be a privilege and an honor to represent the USA in the first ever Slopestyle event at the Olympics. 

      FIRST TRACKS
      Jenson started skiing at age six at Kelly Canyon Ski Resort. By 10, she made the switch to snowboarding. Although she never had lessons, the entire Jenson family went to the mountain every weekend to “pretend to know what we were doing… we eventually caught on,” she said.  

      OFF THE SNOW
      When Jensen is not out on the slopes, she likes to ride dirt bikes, wakeboards and mountain bikes. You can also find her jumping on trampolines and working out. Since she is gone all season, she has a lot of catching up to do with her friends at home. She also makes neck warmers called J!Wow Nekk Armor.
