After a successful competitive season, Ian Krommenhoek was recently selected as the Squaw Valley Freestyle and Freeride Teamand#8217;s Athlete of the Year.

The award is given each season to an athlete who is well rounded with ability, attitude and achievement. Along with the award, Krommenhoek earned a trip to Water Ramp Training Camp this summer, at the Utah Olympic Park in Park City, Utah, with coach Cody Salrin.

While the team and#8212; aka SquawFree and#8212; has a proven legacy in mogul skiing, it has also evolved to encompass newer, complementary disciplines of freestyle skiing, including freeride (slopestyle and halfpipe) and freeskiing (big-mountain), where it offers prestigious coaching and trains juniors at the highest levels.

With 120 athletes training at Squaw Valley, SquawFree grooms talent as young as 8, as well as under-18 athletes competing on professional international circuits.
