We welcome Jess McMillan to the PowderQuest team of ski coaches for the 2016 ski season in Chile. Jess will host our 5th annual Ingrid Backstrom’s Next Level Women’s Ski Camp filling in for Ingrid Backstrom. Ingrid will be taking the season off from coaching in Chile to begin her family.
Meet Jess McMillan
Jess McMillan is the most winning big mountain freeskier of all time, male or female. She has been crowned US Freeskiing Champion and Freeskiing World Champion. If you are a fan of Warren Miller ski films, you have seen her star in No Turning Back, Ticket To Ride, Flow State, and Like There’s No Tomorrow (filmed in Portillo, Chile). She also appeared in Unicorn Picnic’s Pretty Faces and Sweetgrass Productions Signatures.
I am so excited to be a partner with PowderQuest and Nevados de Chillan. Chillian is one of my favorite resorts in Chile. The terrain is super fun and great for working skills and pushing limits. I am looking forward to an amazing week! – Jess McMillan
Born and raised in beautiful Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Jess spent her years growing up in the outdoors. Jess quickly fell in love with skiing the fun and technical terrain of Jackson and the Teton’s backcountry and eventually began to compete internationally on the Freeride World Tour. She won her first championship in 2007. The tour has taken her around the globe to exotic ski destinations like Russia, Japan, and South America.
Jess now spends her time running her Pilates studio in Jackson Hole, traveling and filming for Warren Miller Entertainment, and ski coaching around the planet. We are excited she is joining PowderQuest to ski coach in Nevados de Chillan this summer!
