Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows Introduces New On-Demand “Ride with a Pro” Service Powered By the Stomp Sessions Mobile and Web Platform

Big name pros Jeremy Jones, JT Holmes, Julia Mancuso, Jamie Anderson and others among Stomp’s network of pro snowboarders, skiers and skateboarders

OLYMPIC VALLEY, Calif. (February 13, 2018) — Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows this weekend will become the first snowsports resort in the world to offer on-demand “Ride with a pro” service powered by the Stomp Sessions mobile and web platform.

Stomp, a startup founded in 2016 in nearby Truckee, Calif., started connecting skateboarders with pro skaters and local experts last year in Southern California for lessons, classes and ride with a pro experiences. Stomp is now entering the snowsports market with the partnership with Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows announced today with the ride with a pro experience.

Starting today, local pro athletes Jeremy Jones, JT Holmes, Julia Mancuso, Jamie Anderson and other pros are now available for personal sessions booked through the Stomp Sessions mobile app. On-mountain sessions with Stomp pros start at one hour, serving up to 3 people and includes lift line priority access for the duration of each session, maximizing time on the mountain. Stomp pros also document the session with a photo or video for clients to share with their friends.

“Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows is home to some of the world’s most decorated and admired athletes, and with the Stomp Sessions app, our guests can now connect directly with these beloved snowsports heroes to ride our legendary terrain,” said Andy Wirth, President of Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows. “Stomp is a home-grown Tahoe company that is changing how people experience action sports, and with Silicon Valley in our back yard, we’re excited to be the first resort in the world to offer this breakthrough technology to our guests.”

Stomp introduced its unique app last year at multiple skateparks in Southern California and Lake Tahoe, where skaters are already booking sessions with pro and local expert skateboarders.

“With Stomp, we’re trying to solve a simple problem in action sports,” said CEO and co-founder Ryan Williams, a Big Air silver medalist at the 1998 X Games in Aspen, Colo. “There has always been a line between the pros and everyone else. Now, with the Stomp Sessions app, that line is gone. Want to ride with Jeremy Jones at Squaw? Want to do a session at Oceanside Skatepark with  SLS Super Crown Champion Chris Cole? You can. The people you see in the movies and the magazines have always been right there with you in the lift line and the skatepark. Now, you can shred together!”

The Stomp Sessions app is available for download in the App Store and Google Play stores.
