Sarah Williams is a fifteen year old sophomore at Truckee High School and Squaw Valley Big Mountain Team member. Sarah competes in the 15-17 year old girls big mountain competition and has three victories this season. Sarah took first at Alpine Meadows on the Junior Tahoe Freeride Series, the Crested Butte Extremes on the Junior Freeskiing Tour, and Crystal Mountain Junior Freeskiing championships.
In her own words:
“Day one of the of the (Crystal Mountain) JFT was held in the Elk Chutes venue. It was a foggy, snowy day and visibility was less than ideal. My run consisted of mostly open skiing up top which led into a very icy entrance into a fall line air out the bottom. I felt like my skiing wasn’t up to its usual pace and I ended the day in second, trailing Perry Martin from Alta/Snowbird by 2.5 points.” Read the rest of this entry »
