SVSEF’s first ever “Intermural Scrimmage” at Rotarun

The SVSEF held its first “Intermural Scrimmage” Slopestyle Saturday March 13th at Rotarun in Hailey.

The event had the Foundations Freeski, Mini X and Snowboard programs all taking part. All of the programs’ staff and Rotarun general manager Riley Berman worked together to build a great course that featured 3 jump options: a box, a rail and even a unicorn!

Parent and supporter attendance was great and the local support from the Board Bin and Paul Kenny’s made sure that there was a ton of swag from Coal, Union Bindings, Jones snowboards, Gnu Snowboards, Smith, Da Kine and tons of others for standout runs!

The event was held in a jam format which kept the action going with 2 riders on the course at all times. It really felt like a demo with the SVSEF skiers and riders as the main attraction. This was an amazing way to showcase what the kids have been working so hard on this season. With travel and events at a premium this season the kids didn’t hold back.

On the ski side, Freeski:

The kids definitely showed off their skills with impressive tricks for the crowd. They were going huge and throwing Switch rodeos 540, flat 360, cork 540, 720 and sliding rails. This is one young talented group of skiers at SVSEF the future is looking bright.

The Snowboarders didn’t disappoint either with kids going big and really pushing each other to step up their game. Not to be out done, the ladies stood out with a core group setting the bar and showing that they will be a force to be reckoned with in the near future. The battle in the 10 and under boys group was fierce with Rylan Olsen and Enzo Schmillen setting the bar for each other and blasting big airs on the second jump!
