The Tahoe Junior Freeride Series originated in 2007 as a friendly big mountain competition between Squaw Valley and Sugar Bowl ski teams. It has grown into a regional series that boasts over 180 competitors. TJFS is a series of four comps. Each comp has a three day format with every competitor skiing/riding two runs over three days. There are no cuts after the first day. TJFS has four age categories: Girls 11-14, Girls 15-18, Boys 11-14, and Boys 15-18. In 2013, TJFS added two snowboarding categories, 11-14 and 15-18. Competitors can earn points from TJFS comps toward national IFSA ranking.
