Freeskiing Titles

  • Answer coming soon

Describe a highlight moment from your 2015 IFSA season.

Claiming first at Crested Butte.  I've won the overall title before and was heading that way again but I've never taken first at any qualifier until this winter.  To have it at the Butte extremes was the cherry on top because the Butte has always been an epicentre of extreme and it was nothing less than gnarly

Where are you when you are not freeriding?

For the other six months I am mountain biking, hiking peaks, doing yoga, weights,working, having fun outdoors

What can't you stop talking about?

FWT 2016 and weather, always

What would you like to see change in the world and how can you make it happen?

no more plastic bags.

Tell us something about yourself that is unusual or little known.

I've been splitboarding for 16 years all over the world

Freestyle Q!

I had a time with my fellow athletes this winter, the comaraderie among the females is the best and I'll miss you on the tour next winter!  It just won't be the same without you!
