Thanks to Icicle TV contributor & Social Media Guru Corey Mckenna for this article and pictures.
Last weekend I was privileged enough to chase skis for a bunch of talented groms at the Jim Jack Memorial Cowboy Up at Stevens Pass. These kids flipped and shredded their way down a crusty slope to cross the line at the finish to the roar of cheers & ski pole clicks from fans and competitors alike. The conditions may not have been ideal, but you couldn’t tell that by the way they rode. I didn’t get a chance to spend a bunch of time Jim Jack, but after listening to all of the stories, and seeing all of the love that has been poured out for Jim in the last year I would like to think we would have been good friends….. Especially after meeting the amazing people who are close to Jim Jack. I know JJ would be proud of the comradery of the competitors at his event!
