24th Annual Janss Pro-Am Classic

March 30, 2023 - April 1, 2023,

Welcome to the Janss Pro-Am Classic

Bill Janss’ lasting legacy and one of his biggest gifts to the Wood River Valley is one of vision. His ability to see far into the future and realize the impact of certain decisions, paired with a principled vision of what constitutes a healthy community have had far-reaching effects. Important to Bill was the youth of the community and that every child had the chance to learn to ski, knowing that the opportunity would serve them well into their futures with positive attitudes, confidence, and a desire to achieve.

Celebrating our 24th Janss Pro-Am this year is due to the stalwart support of participants, partners, pros, sponsors and volunteers since 1998. Thanks to the efforts of many, we are still honoring the memory of Bill Janss and instilling his legacy and love for the sport of skiing into the lives of young people through our world-class coaching, facilities and, of course, the wonderful mountains and valley we inhabit.

SVSEF provides ski and snowboard training and competitive opportunities for more than 800 student-athletes each season, with over $400,000 in financial aid provided to deserving kids and families across our programs this past winter. Your support of the Janss Pro-Am is instrumental in our ability to help keep snowsport accessible to the youth of the Wood River Valley.

SVSEF is proud to host the Janss Pro-Am Classic in Bill’s honor, and we are so glad you are able to join us and celebrate Bill’s spirit.

Scott McGrew, SVSEF Executive Director
