Winter 20/21 was an incredible season of improvement and growth for many young TVSEF athletes.

All 169 TVSEF athletes finished out the 2020-21 season last month. In the face of numerous challenges this year, it was an incredible season of improvement and growth for many athletes. The stoke on the slopes and trails was palpable each practice, making it a season to remember.

“At the start of the season, we were all skeptical of how it might play out. Now that we have made it across the finish line, I really couldn’t be more proud of all of our coaches and families. They all adjusted to new protocols and still made the most out of training,” said executive director Bridget Baumeister.

In addition to training, TVSEF was represented at 28 events throughout the season by 77 athletes. Across all disciplines, TVSEF brought in 130 top 10 finishes in competition this season. A further breakdown of participants and placements is listed below.

As always, our TVSEF seasons could not be possible without the support from our on-snow partners, Teton Valley Trails and Pathways and Grand Targhee Resort. Thank you to TVTAP for keeping our cross country trails well groomed and in mint condition. A big thank you to Grand Targhee Resort for not only hosting our weekly training sessions, but also the many races, competitions, and events that took place at the resort this season. Thank you to all of our athletes, parents, coaches, and partners, for an awesome season! Looking forward to next year already!
