The Salomon Jib Academy hits [R354R, Seven Springs] Saturday, Feb. 7 for a day of free instruction.

The Salomon Jib Academy is a global tour of slopestyle ski events for athletes 16 years old and younger. Participants ski in groups all morning with a Salomon pro coach learning new tricks and meeting other skiers.
