Thank You to Volkl Skis and Marker Bindings for Presenting the TRAiNS Freestyle Ski and Snowboard Contest!
Here’s toVolkl Skis and Marker Bindings for six years of presenting the TRAiNS Freestyle Ski and Snowboard Contest. Be sure to head to Alpine Meadows for the FREE event at 11am on Saturday!
TRAiNS is a freestyle ski & snowboard contest unlike any other. The namesake of the High Fives Foundation can be traced back to an idea for a freestyle ski contest. The Foundation began with a simple concept: hold a contest, called High Fives for close friends and top skiers in the Lake Tahoe region to raise money and awareness for athletes that suffer a life-altering injury while pursuing a dream in the winter action sports.
Custom-made bigtruck brand hats, music from the Silver Boombox Thief, Jamie LaValles world famous chicken wings, food from the Full Belly Deli, and a world-class competition venue produced by Crux Events are now staples of the marquee event. In addition to the action on the hill, TRAiNS is an event that gives back with the winning athletes and best team donating their respective cash purses to selected charitable organizations.
Volkl Skis and Marker Bindings Athlete – Nick Goepper will be competing at the event. Don’t miss the reigning X Games Gold Medalist and Association of Freeskiing Professionals Slopestyle – World Champ as he has a great time mixing it up with the other world-class athletes at TRAiNS 2013!
