      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. During the last three years, Jenson has continued to progress her riding and her bag of tricks, which includes her signature frontside 720.

      The 2014 season was Jenson’s best yet. At the final two Olympic qualifiers at the Mammoth U.S. Sprint Grand Prix Jenson earned back-to-back third-place finishes, landing her a spot on the first-ever Olympic slopestyle snowboarding team. After a solid thirteenth place in Sochi, Jenson continued to climb the international ranks with an eighth at the Burton U.S. Open, punctuating a great season for this rising star.

      JESSIKA SAYS
      This season was definitely the best season of my snowboarding career; going to the Olympics was definitely the highlight. It was a huge honor and a privilege. Getting there wasn’t easy, so I enjoyed every moment there. It was so cool going there and representing for our country. 

      FIRST TRACKS
      Jenson started skiing at age six at Kelly Canyon Ski Resort near Rigby, ID. By 10 she made the switch to snowboarding, and 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 isn’t snowboarding, she likes to ride dirt bikes, wakeboards and mountain bikes. You can also find her jumping on trampolines and working out during the summer, and since she is gone all winter, she has a lot of catching up to do with her friends at home. In her free time, she also makes neck warmers called J!Wow Nekk Armor.
