IFSA Video: Erik Hilb killing it

September 16th, 2013 by

The past several years we have traveled across the continent to some of the biggest junior freeride competitions. Both the IFSA and JFT provide the opportunity for young and upcoming skiers in the US and Canada to showcase their talent.

The talent at the junior IFSA events and JFT events rivals the talent of the FWT 4 star events. Over the next several days we will include some season edits from some of these talented athletes and it’s the summer, so enjoy the skiing!

Erik Hilb is a talented 17 YO skier from Vail, CO. He is comfortable in the park, on big mountain terrain, and turns his skis as well as anyone. Check out some of the technicality of some of the lines in this video. He had a great year and we look forward to watching Erik continue to progress.

Erik had this to say about his season:

“I broke my arm early on in the season but I was back skiing by January and was able to secure a few National podiums and on several occasions I was holding the highest individual score of the competition. Had a great time shredding with all the guys on the tour this year and am way stoked to ride with all of them again this season! Big ups to Oakley, Pret Helmets, Full Tilt Boots, and Soul Poles for the support, and of course thanks to my parents and coaches!”

Seth had this to say about his season:

“To say the least,  I had an amazing season.  From skiing with an elite group of kids from all around the country, to getting my first gold medals in the older age group, I could not have asked for a better year with the athletes and coaches at the Alta/Bird Freeride program.  I’m stoked and ready for another great season!”
