Winter 2012 was truly a breakout season for 20-year-old Jackie Hernandez, as she won nearly all the Nor-Ams she entered—six out of eight to be exact. She quickly climbed the ranks of the World Cup circuit, ending with an impressive win at the final World Cup of the season in Valmalenco, Italy.
For Hernandez’s first year on the team, she did very well, making nearly all the finals she entered and taking eighth at the Blue Mountain World Cup. Unfortunately, at the Canyons Grand Prix she took a spill and injured her arm. With her dedication to rehab, she will be back on snow and stronger than ever very soon.
