So, you just moved out to Tahoe.. what made you want to make the move?

For the past 4 years I have devoted my life to snowboarding! Every 2 years I try and move to new resort town, Aspen, Steamboat, Keystone, and now all the Tahoe mountains. I love to experience as much traveling as I can when it comes to snowboarding! It’s one of the major benefits from the sport, a great way to meet new riders!

What’s your fave thing about So-Cal so far?

So far my favorite thing about So,Cal are the people! Everyone I have met in So-Cal share the same interests as me, snowboarding play volleyball, and enjoy the outdoors!

What do you think you’ll miss most about “Slummit” County?

“Slummit County” that is funny… so true- in the winter Keystone’s park is by far my favorite out of all the parks that I have the up in the United States. I will always love Keystone and the positive energy you get when you are on the mountain. Though in the summer time I really miss the Copper to Frisco bike trail, 6 miles of down hill smooth pavement – my friends and I would love to longboard down the trail multiple times!
