Giving it her all - Slopestyle!
Jenny Jones Slopestyle Snowboarder

Jenny Jones from Bristol learnt to snowboard on a dry slope aged 17 before honing her talent by working a season as a chalet host in Tignes. She found the time to practice and soon went on to become one of the UK's most successful professional snowboarders!

Winning awards since 2009 she has made a huge impact on the sport- 3 times gold medallist at the X Games (including Tignes where her real snow experience began) and winning 5 British Championships. Jenny has also been voted Female Rider of the Year by Method Magazine. She has starred in several snowboarding movies and is known to be a generally lovely person in the snowboarding community as well as very modest.

Jenny follows the snow around the world across Europe, to New Zealand and the USA too. When not on the hill she enjoys surfing and spending time at home with family. This year she had some extra rest time and actually spent time at home for Christmas after suffering a concussion!

Now 33, Jenny is still a top competitor in her sport and will give it her all at Sochi. Slopestyle involves skiers or snowboarders completing a course with tricks off very big jumps and rails. Points are awarded for the tricks based on size, difficulty and execution. Jenny is excited about the upcoming Winter Games but is certainly feeling the pressure with slopestyle making its' debut!
