The JLA Project

Organizer of JLA Banked Slalom
The JLA Project was founded 15 years ago after the passing of snowboarder Jeff Anderson. The original goal of the foundation was to build a skate park in Mammoth Lakes, now the renowned Volcom Brothers Skate Park. The next goal, or Phase 2 of the Foundation, is maintaining and improving the Skate Park each year, as well taking an emphasis on a renewed nurturing support of the sport of snowboarding from a grassroots level. The JLA Project is a movement to remind the community that snowboarding is an entire lifestyle. It’s been growing into the mainstream for so long, and we feel that Jeff’s influence is needed now more than ever. We must care for snowboarding again, in ways that only snowboarders can.

All proceeds from entry fees benefit The JLA Project.
