Membership... Tahoe Junior Freeride Series (TJFS)/Tahoe Freeride schedules, organizes and executes events, maintains regional rankings, and advocates for Freeride athletes in the Far West Region of IFSA. TJFS was founded in 2010 by coaches and Freeride parents with the goal of providing consistency across all Far West Region events.
