Women Fitness President talks to the inspirational snowboarder about her road to success!
You are an Olympic silver medalist, 6-time world champion and 10-time X Games gold medalist.. What attracted you towards snowboarding as a sport, if you were to sum up in a few words?
Well… My family and I were the weekend warriors at Stratton Mountain, VT every weekend for as long as I can remember. Then my brother took an interest in snowboarding. He picked it up right away and I naturally need to do everything that my older brother did so I took a lesson with my father. As I grew in the sport, it was such a different feeling compared to skiing and it made the mountain that I had been on for years seem like a new quest, the next adventure.
