Name: Madeline “Mimi” Wiencke

Why do you snowboard? I love it. When I’m snowboarding, I’m not thinking or worrying about anything other than how much fun I am having and how free I feel.
Snowboard Icon: Karine Ruby
Gnarliest Spot: Summers at Mt. Hood and early season at A-Basin
First Memory: Watching the 1998 Olympics at home with my dad, and knowing that’s what I wanted to do.
Last Love: Water. If I had grown up near the ocean, I probably would have been a surfer instead of a snowboarder.
Favorite Book: Way of the Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman
Favorite Video: All.I.Can.
