Organized by the High Fives Foundation, TRAiNS is an annual ski and snowboard contest in which the winnings from the contest are donated to the winning athlete’s favorite charities.  This year, thirty competitors gathered at Alpine Meadows, CA, to take part. Charities that benefited included: Shane McConkey Foundation, the Bob Woodruff Foundation, and the Sarah Burke Foundation.  This comp is about having fun, and the competitors certainly put on a show.  To learn more about the High Fives Foundation, visit their website.
