Jen Hudak | Director
Jen is a two-time world champion and 5-time X-Games medalist in halfpipe skiing. A New England native who grew up skiing in Vermont, she always had an affinity for challenges and quickly found herself in love with skiing moguls. At age 12, Jen joined the freestyle team at Okemo where Jen found the thrill of halfpipe to be completely irresistible and her skiing career took off. Though now retired from competition, Jen now focuses on sharing her passion for the mountains and snow with others so that they too can reap the benefits of a life spent exploring the mountains. She is inspired to help others reach their goals on the hill. To Jen, it is not about producing the next Olympian, but guiding people toward their personal limits and then helping transcend them, by teaching people to respect their bodies for what they are capable of doing, not simply how they look. Whether it is ripping GS turns down a groomer, tearing through the moguls, or deciphering a big mountain line, Jen will be there with a big grin on her face, cheering you on. Jen continues to pursue personal adventures on her skis and mountain bikes in her local Wasatch Mountains and works for a small marketing firm in Park City, UT.
