SL,UT Spotlight: Jake Trotta

Trotta1

Jake Trotta, dubbed Queen King of The Rat Pack, has been in Utah’s downhill scene for a while, and deserves a bit of recognition. When he’s not selling over-priced theme park food, teaching groms how to be cool, or playing with his pet snake(no pun intended), he is out shredding the semi-gnarly roads of Davis County. I met up with Jake earlier today to document said gnar shredding, and get some good skating in myself.

Jake is a rad dude, and he keeps the Davis County groms in check. I had a good time skating his home turf today, and learning all the life lessons he has to teach. Definitely skate with this guy if you get the chance!
