Telluride Ski and Snowboard Club alpine team skier Will Plantz placed tenth overall at the J4 Jr. Olympics in Steamboat, competing against the very best 11- and 12-year-olds in the Rockies and central U.S. “He really capitalized on his experience and hard work over the past two seasons as a J4,” said Chandler. On his heels was Finn Bailis, who, in his first year as a J4, who beat over half the field. Jack Plantz, Anna Fake and Griffin Mueller competed at the J3 Jr. Olympics against the best 13- and 14-year-olds in the Rocky/Central regions, with Jack Plantz, returning to the event for the second time, 10th overall, and Fake and Mueller, both first-timers, beating more than two-thirds of the field.
