Ian Krommenhoek selected as Athlete of the Year by SquawFree

After a successful competitive season, Ian Krommenhoek was recently selected as the Squaw Valley Freestyle and Freeride Team’s Athlete of the Year.

The award is given each season to an athlete who is well rounded with ability, attitude and achievement. Along with the award, Krommenhoek earned a trip to Water Ramp Training Camp this summer, at the Utah Olympic Park in Park City, Utah, with coach Cody Salrin.

While the team — aka SquawFree — has a proven legacy in mogul skiing, it has also evolved to encompass newer, complementary disciplines of freestyle skiing, including freeride (slopestyle and halfpipe) and freeskiing (big-mountain), where it offers prestigious coaching and trains juniors at the highest levels.

With 120 athletes training at Squaw Valley, SquawFree grooms talent as young as 8, as well as under-18 athletes competing on professional international circuits.
