 The OVWSF and Snowbasin are proud to welcome the newest Team Utah chapter to its slopes this season as well as Head Coach Jon Clark.  Team Utah Program Director Lane Clegg said, “We are not only excited to expand to Snowbasin, but after a long search and many interviews Jon Clark was a perfect fit for our newest mountain chapter”.  Gordon Perry OVWSF Director adds, “The foundation is excited to partner with a quality program like Team Utah that has a proven track record of success throughout Utah and whose leadership matches the vision of ours with the pursuit of excellence in the development of young athletes”.  New Team Utah coach Jon Clark brings over 8 years of instruction and coaching to Snowbasin and with this new position he will be able to focus more on the freeride and freestyle aspect of snowboarding. Jon’s other qualifications include AASI level 3 certification and a degree from Weber State in Recreation Management with a minor in coaching.  “I am really excited to bring the snowboard element to the OVWSF organization and Team Utah has allowed that opportunity for me”, Jon said.
