Senior Spotlight - Jacob C.

 

 

         

 

Jacob has greeted many a racer, coach and volunteer at the Jason Harper Training Center over the years. First Mitey Mite, then Freeride Team member, he may be the only person to have coached both alpine and freestyle before graduating high school.

“It was a long time ago,” he says about his start in the program before launching into stories of adventures he has enjoyed over the years. He was 9 years old when he pivoted to Freeride and started skiing with Michael and Barry Young, Jason and Tyler. “That group”, he said, “felt like a family. You are exploring the whole mountain, trying new jumps, spotting each other and just trying to do better than the week before. Freeride equals family bonding.”

He tried to keep it just as fun for the athletes he coached and once even got a liftie in on the action. His athletes were all partnered up on the chairs ahead of him. So, he and the Lift Operator built a quick snowman. “The look on the kids’ faces, not to mention the Lift Operator at the top, when I came riding up alongside ‘Little Johnny Snowman’ was priceless!”

Jacob served on numerous course crews over the years and counts the people he worked with among his greatest influences. “I really enjoyed working with Mark Wedeking, Jeremy Mahaylo and Ben Roberts. Their positivity – it’s always a good thing. You work hard, and it is fun to work.”

Jacob graduates from Skyview High School this year and plans to learn machine tooling at CWI. He picked up the interest and a talent for it in the Ag Shop at Columbia High. “You can build engines and anything there. If you want to build it, they will teach you how.”

Good luck Jacob!

Senior Spotlight - Nikita R.

 

Juggling and spinning are just a couple of Nikita’s talents, and she intends to continue doing both. “I plan to be a normal academic pursuing a skiing career,” she said. Every college on her list accommodates that plan, with the University of Utah holding the top spot.

Utah is familiar territory for this freestyle skier and where her ability to juggle academics and athletics proved an important success factor. For three years, she trained in Park City while working hard to get the grades at Bishop Kelly High School. “I took a lot of summer classes and online classes and had a lot of support from advisors and teachers at my school.”

Nikita’s path started with the Bogus Basin Mouse House when she was three years old. “My parents were vacation skiers until we moved to Boise and started skiing every weekend.” She enrolled in BBSEF as a Mitey Mite racer and joined the Freestyle/Big Mountain team as soon as she could. “When Bogus started doing park and rail, I discovered a love of spinning.”

That love of spinning earned her a trip to Norway as a member of the 2016 U.S. Winter Youth Olympic Team. “The entire experience was sensational. There were fancy venues. I loved wearing the U.S. outfits and credentials. It was the best half-pipe I have ever seen!”

A tear in her ACL while water ramping last summer sidelined Nikita from athletic qualifiers for the 2018 Winter Olympics. Once cleared for skiing and little jumps though, she got right back at it and continued her recuperation with the BBSEF Freestyle team.

“Bogus Basin has always been my favorite mountain. It is the best little gem. Locals know how to ski and board here and they know where all the prime spots are.”

Celebrating 50 years of putting smiles on kids’ faces while they build lifelong love of sport.

Senior Spotlight - Hannah C.

 

Corner Hannah while she is sorting bibs, and there is a small chance she will share a little bit about herself.  She would much rather talk about the Mitey Mites she has been privileged to coach and the fun of helping them improve their skills. “I love working with the kids. No matter what level they start with, they have more confidence and skill at the end of the season. That is why the Coaches Cup 4-Way is my favorite event. You see all this improvement at the end of the season. It is pretty exciting to see.”

Hannah started coaching three years ago, bringing seven years of personal experience honing those skills to the job. She joined BBSEF at age 7 and raced her way through Mitey Mites, North Series and U14. She capped off her ski race career at the 2014 IMD Champs in Utah.

Favorite memories involve camping with the team at Anthony Lakes and Tamarack. “One night a coyote was heard outside the camper, and we all ran outside to see it. Then we had to turn around and run laughing and screaming right back in.”

Family holds a special place in her heart when she thinks about skiing too. Not only did her Dad, Chuck Combs, get her on skis for the first time at age 4, but his parents - Hannah’s much-loved Pops and Grammy - provided Hannah and her sister Sarah with their first speed suits and shin guards. Pops and Grammy also attended every ski race possible year after year. Next year the family will all get to track Hannah's progress as a Bobcat on the MSU Cross-Country team.

Hannah signed with MSU Bozeman on National Signing Day.  She plans to study Chemical Engineering while she puts in the miles on the team. Cross Country involves year-round training, but she will work in some skiing for fun whenever she can.

“Thanks to my Dad, I have had really great times on this mountain and with this program. It’s been good, really good.”
