We’re back with Athlete of the Week! SVSEF provides ski and snowboard programming to nearly 700 athletes in the Wood River Valley. Athlete of the Week is an opportunity to highlight individuals who embody the values championed by this organization; sportsmanship, citizenship, character, teamwork, creativity, passion and perseverance. 

Bryce Kanowsky, Alpine IMD

Bryce is an outstanding example of where hard work can get you. He’s a great teammate, responds well to coaching, and is passionate about skiing. He never gives up and is always looking to elevate his charging hunger on the course. Above all, he’s a great guy to be around.

Abby Hobbs, Freestyle Progression

Abby has been working hard to improve her technical skills, both on the snow and in the Air Barn. Her dedication to becoming a better athlete has definitely shown this year – we’re really impressed with how much she’s grown and taken responsibility for herself in her training and progression.

Freestyle Head Coach

Gerald Espinoza, Snowboard D Team

Gerald is quite the standout on the D Team – nobody does it quite like Gerald. He snowboards to his own drum, and that’s what makes him unique among the kids on the D Team. He’s one of the leaders in the group, and he lets his riding do the talking.
