Jarod was born and raised in West Virginia, and grew up on the slopes at Snowshoe Mountain Resort. At 17 he moved to Lake Tahoe with his brother Bobby for better riding and training as well as more opportunities to progress in the sport. After moving to Tahoe, Jarod was able to qualify for Junior Worlds and win the Revolution Tour Overall Series in his first year there.
In the following years Jarod continued to progress quickly and began getting more and more NorAm podiums and wins. In 2011 he won Canadian Nationals and NorAm finals, and finished second overall in the NorAm Cup standings. That jump-started his career to getting more World Cup starts and opportunities on bigger stages.
Over the last few seasons Jarod has been consistently improving on the World Cup circuit. He began to regularly place in the top 20 finishing off the 2013 season and going into the Olympic year. Unfortunately at the first 2014 Olympic qualifier Jarod had an accident resulting in a major knee injury that would put him out for the rest of the season.
Since the injury Jarod has been rehabbing and working hard to get back to snowboarding. His knee is progressing great and he is looking forward and eager to making his comeback next season.
As next season is now getting closer everything is coming back together though. My knee is healing up great, and it looks like I should be fully recovered for next season. On top of that I was just named to the SBX Development Team and I couldn’t be more excited to get back in the gate this upcoming season!
