“The event was incredible. The athletes took skiing and riding to a whole new level this year,” says JHMR Senior Events and Partnership Manager Jess McMillan who was part of the brain-trust behind the inaugural event four years ago.
“We had a challenging weather window (it just keeps snowing!), not to mention pulling an event off like this in times of COVID. It’s a true testament to the dedicated staff, athletes, and partners to execute such an amazing competition this winter. We are so grateful,” McMillan added.
