Participants have a grand old time at Vintage Janss
April 10, 2012
The 15th annual Janss Pro Am was the second-largest ever hosted by the Sun Valley Ski Education and this time around bigger was definitely better.
SVSEF Events Director Kate Berman said, "I think it could have been the best Janss ever. We couldn't have had better weather, or more fun and exciting teams. Everything went really well."
The winning teams were the Sawtooth/Roosevelt Winos for the overall title and Team Retro for the Speed Cup.
Proceeds from the Janss Pro Am help support 450 youth members of the SVSEF alpine, snowboard, freestyle and cross-country teams.
