You have really blown up this year, making the PacSun/USASA team and getting on the podium at almost every event you’ve been at. What has this year been like for you?
It’s a nice change. It like something just clicked at the beginning of the year and I just found a new love for snowboarding. I went to Hood with the PacSun/USASA team over the summer and it was cool to be a part of a new team and doing photo shoots. I also got to do a shoot over X Games with the team, and that was really cool.
Where is your favorite place to ride?
Snowmass. I really like the triple line, it’s a great place for progression and fanny hill kills it!
Tell me about today…
The morning went well, I did a tail grab on the first big side to a back three on the next big side to indy. The rails on the right side were a little hard with a big flat down and a down flat down. The weather was horrible and it was super icy with a ton of wind and sideway snow. My first run is what won it, I was feeling really strong on the rails.
Who are your inspirations?
My favorite snowboarder is Marie France-Roy and I definitely look up to the Aspen Valley Snowboard Club coaches.
What is your favorite pre-game meal?
Six-inch meatball sub from Subway.
Kyla, Peter, Catie, Arielle, Sharky, Morris, Dillon, and the AVSC crew.
If you were an animal, what would you be?
Elephant. I like elephants.
What are your goals for next year?
To get better. Back sevens for sure. That’s a summer project. I might go to South America to get some more practice.
