Kristen Sass Winner 

Congratulations to Kristen Vaughn!

Kristen can apply her $300 scholarship from SASS Global Travel to any travel with SASS, an avalanche safety course, wilderness first aid training, or any training opportunity as it relates to backcountry safety. Kristen is thinking about using her scholarship for a Wilderness First Aid or Crevasse Rescue Course.

If summer is a bummer, know that IFSA athletes are heading to SASS Argentina this to hone their freeriding skills, practice line selection, air awareness, confidence, and flow. This experience is complimented by the vibrant culture of Argentina in the depth of the Southern Hemisphere's winter. The terrain of Argentina lends itself perfectly to big mountain and freeride skiing, it's the perfect place to prep for next winter's competition season.

What does freeride training at SASS Argentina look like? CLICK HERE for a peek at the fun.

  • All IFSA Athletes are invited to SASS Argentina at a $300 discount.
  • Teams bringing multiple athletes can obtain a group rate.
