A self-starter, Jessika Jenson began competing at age 14 at local Idaho resorts. With appearances at every possible open event, Jenson began climbing the ranks and mingling with other talented riders. She now has two Olympic Games under her belt as well as three World Championship appearances and a few World Cup podiums.
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 says.
OFF THE SNOW
When Jensen isn’t snowboarding, she likes to ride dirt bikes, wake boards and mountain bikes. You can also find her jumping on trampolines and working out during the summer, and since she is on the road all winter, she has a lot of catching up to do with her friends at home.
