What’s the best part about being a girl snowboarder in the Midwest?
Riding in the Midwest is more of a tight-knit group where we all ride with each other rather than compete against each other. Being a girl in this aspect is really cool because you don’t really get the title of being a “girl snowboarder”, if you know what I mean.
If you had to dye your hair any neon color what would it be and why?
Blue, because it’s a rad color.
What’s the number one trick you want to stomp on a street rail this year?
I really want to get a backside boardslide through a big kink rail that I have my eye on in Michigan.
If you had to marry a celebrity who would it be?
I already got one.
How are you able to do 50 one armed pushups in a row?!
Handplants.
