We welcome Jess McMillan to the PowderQuest team of ski coaches for another ski season in Chile.
Jess will host our 8th annual Women’s Ski Camp founded by ski legend, Ingrid Backstrom.
Meet Jess McMillan
Jess McMillan is the most winning big mountain freeskier of all time, male or female. She has been crowned US Freeskiing Champion and Freeskiing World Champion. If you are a fan of Warren Miller ski films, you have seen her star in No Turning Back, Ticket To Ride, Flow State, and Like There’s No Tomorrow (filmed in Chile). She also appeared in Unicorn Picnic’s Pretty Faces and Sweetgrass Productions Signatures.
I am so thrilled that Jess McMillan will be filling in as head coach. She is one of my favorite skiers and people to ski with–she absolutely charges, she is an amazing coach with tons of experience and I always learn from her when I ski with her. Plus she has great energy and is just an awesome person to hang out with on a ski trip or really anywhere for that matter! – Ingrid Backstrom
Born and raised in beautiful Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Jess spent her years growing up in the outdoors. Jess quickly fell in love with skiing the fun and technical terrain of Jackson and the Teton’s backcountry and eventually began to compete internationally on the Freeride World Tour. She won her first championship in 2007. The tour has taken her around the globe to exotic ski destinations like Russia, Japan, and South America.
Jess now spends her time running her Pilates studio in Jackson Hole, traveling and filming for Warren Miller Entertainment, and ski coaching around the planet. We are excited she is joining PowderQuest to ski coach in Chile this summer!
