Jenny Jones receives prestigious snowsports prize

Jenny Jones receives prestigious snowsports prize

Further congratulations are in order for Jenny Jones, who has been awarded the Ski Club of Great Britain's Pery Medal. This highly regarded prize honours Jones for her services to the snowsports industry, as well as for the fantastic performances which won her three X-Games gold medals and of course, a bronze medal at the Winter Olympics.

Hailing from Bristol, Jones tried snowboarding for the first time aged 17 at her local dry slope in Avon.  She then went on to work as a chalet maid in the resort of Tignes, which allowed her to spend as much time as possible out on the slopes.  Jenny’s talent was quickly spotted and within two seasons she was already riding professionally.  She went on to become the first UK athlete to win an X Games Gold, beginning her list amazing achievements which have brought her to where she is today.

Also picking up prestigious Pery Medals were Paralympic skiers Kelly Gallagher and Jade Etherington, plus their guides Charlotte Evans and Caroline Powell.  All four of the athletes were awarded the prize for their outstanding medal wins at this year's Winter Paralympics.  Etherington and Powell scooped up one bronze and three silver medals, with Gallagher and Evans going on to claim the first UK Paralympic gold.
