Our Vail Valley local, Tess Johnson, was named to the 2018 U.S. Olympic Freestyle Ski Team. After years of dedication and hard work, her Olympic dream has come true. Her family has supported her all along the way. Now we're hoping that our community will come together to help the Johnsons with their travel expenses to South Korea. The Olympic Freestyle qualifying will take place on February 9, 2018, and the Women's Freestyle Competition on Feb. 11, 2018.
Tess (17) was born and raised in Vail, and is a senior at the Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy (VSSA). She trained with Ski and Snowboard Club Vail (SSCV). Tess has been competing on the World Cup tour at her family's expense since becoming the youngest woman ever named to the US Freestyle team at age 14. Last weekend, she had a 4th place finish at the final World Cup qualifying event.
Tickets to the Opening Ceremonies are over $400 each. We don't want the Johnson Family to miss it!
Let's get the Johnsons to South Korea to support Tess!
