Snowboarder Wins Gold in Skiing Super-G Against Lindsey Vonn at 2018 Winter Olympics

We normally don’t report on skiing events, but this is just too good to be true. Primarily a snowboarder, 22-year-old Ester Ledecka of the Czech Republic won the women’s super-G gold on skis at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea against Lindsey Vonn and a bunch of other skiers that we have never heard of. Most importantly, she beat Lindsey Vonn, which now makes us understand why Lindsey was so adamant about separating skiing and snowboarding in her statements last year. She was afraid of losing, and that fear has officially come to fruition, getting knocked off the podium and ending up in sixth place while Ledecka claimed gold with a time of 1:21.11.

It was a historic first, marking Ester as the first athlete to ever compete in both skiing and snowboarding at the Olympics, and what a way to come out swinging. Vonn was quoted after saying, “I wish I had as much athleticism as she has that I could just hop from sport to sport and just, like, win everything. But unfortunately, I’m only good at ski racing – and she still beat me.”

The story just keeps getting better. Already focusing on another event, NBC supposedly reported that an Austrian had won, not even giving the 26th position skier a chance to pull off the upset. And then the 26th position skier, or snowboarder we should say (Ledecka), borrowed a pair of American phenom Mikaela Shiffrin’s skis, and proceeded to create arguably the biggest upset of the 2018 Winter Olympics. “I was probably the only snowboarder on site. All the other girls didn’t risk a lot. There must be a lot of pressure on them. I was just trying to do my best run.” -Ester Ledecka.

From all of snowboarding, we would just like to say thanks Ester, and good luck in your next race!

Burton Announces Continued Partnership with Pro Snowboarder Kimmy Fasani

Burlington, VT (February 6, 2018) –  Burton is proud to announce its continuing support of Kimmy Fasani as a key member of the Burton Global Team with a renewed contract. Burton is additionally thrilled to support Kimmy in an exciting new chapter of her life as she becomes a new mom and continues to pursue her professional snowboarding career.

“Kimmy is one of the most inspiring riders I’ve ever had the privilege to work with,” said Donna Carpenter, CEO of Burton Snowboards. “She’s broken countless boundaries in snowboarding both on and off the hill, earning the only female segment in Absinthe Films recent movie TurboDojoand numerous industry awards for her groundbreaking riding. Now, she’s breaking yet another major boundary in the sport – remaining a professional snowboarder through motherhood. We’re beyond proud to back Kimmy during her next biggest adventure – becoming a mom – and we can’t wait to see what stereotypes and boundaries she breaks next.”

Based in Mammoth Lakes, California, Kimmy has established herself in the top echelon of global female riders tackling backcountry lines in annual video parts with Absinthe Films and Transworld Snowboarding, while earning industry accolades and acting as a mentor to the next generation of riders. Kimmy’s prolific snowboard career is rich with accomplishments, and her aggressive style of backcountry freestyle snowboarding speaks for itself. Her continued contribution to the sport of snowboarding is recognized both by fellow riders and the industry, earning her Rider of The Year and Video Part of The Year nominations and wins over the past two seasons. Kimmy has further established herself as a mentor and leader through her Amusement MTN backcountry safety event for aspiring female riders.

Burton’s continuing support of Kimmy aligns with the core principles of the company’s Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI), an internal effort led by Burton CEO Donna Carpenter to elevate women into leadership positions. Founded in 2003, the WLI established progressive maternity and paternity policies for Burton employees so they could grow their families while also growing their careers. In addition, the WLI created a formal mentoring program that set the stage for a mentoring culture across the company. Thanks to these and other efforts spearheaded by the WLI, women now make up over 40% of Burton’s leadership positions. Through Burton’s continued support of Kimmy, the company is sending a clear message that its female athletes can also grow their careers while growing their families.

Kimmy says “I believe that this is the first time in snowboarding a brand and rider have chosen to continue the relationship as the rider transitions to a rider and mom.” She adds, “I had already decided that just because I was pregnant I didn’t need to retire… and having Donna agree is so encouraging! I quickly realized that I was going to be able to continue being myself, sharing my journey, adventures, and lifestyle, without feeling limited.”

With a due date of March 10, 2018, Kimmy has predictably remained active through her pregnancy. She’s riding at a level that she finds comfortable, while also sharing avalanche awareness and rescue information through a series of clinics.

Congratulations to Kimmy on her upcoming new arrival, and the entire Burton family looks forward to supporting her in this exciting new chapter.

Get to Know the 2018 Winter Olympic U.S. Slopestyle Team

The fourth and final member of each U.S. snowboarding discipline’s team headed to the 2018 Winter Olympics was announced last night via the@ussnowboardteam Instagram. Check out the roster that will represent the United States in PyeongChang during the slopestyle competition airing Feb 11-12 below!

All photos from @ussnowboardteam.


Relatively unkown until the past two years of competitions, Corning has made a huge splash with podium finishes that qualified him early for the U.S. Team.


Langland turned heads after landing a Cab double cork 1080 during X Games last year (snagging her the TransWorld SNOWboarding Riders’ Poll Rookie of the Year), and has been on a role ever since. Hailing from Southern California, the 17-year-old has a good chance to leave PyeongChang with medals in Slopestyle and Big Air.


If you haven’t heard of Jamie Anderson, you might be living under a rock. Jamie took home the first ever gold medal in snowboarding slopestyle in Sochi and looks to repeat in PyeongChang. She is one of the most winningest athletes in all of snowboarding, and for good reason.


Jessika Jenson, from Rigby, Idaho, will look to continue her solid qualifying season with a podium in PyeongChang. While her U.S. teammates are more heavily favored come February, Jenson will be representing in Slopestyle and Big Air, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see her in a top three spot when it is all said and done.


-Julia Marino (@_juliamarino)

From Big Air Fenway to the Olympics, Marino’s competitive pedigree just seems to get more impressive everyday. No stranger to the number one spot, Marino will look to add to her X Games collection with an Olympic medal of her own.


Kyle Mack had a storybook ending in Mammoth when he clinched his spot for the U.S. Team at the last possible moment this past weekend, and the Michigan native could do it again in PyeongChang. With supreme style and no lack of confidence, Mack is a threat to mix things up in a stacked field at the 2018 Winter Olympics.


Red Gerard might be young, but after an extremely impressive qualifying season he might just be one of our favorites going into the 2018 Winter Games. Simply put, the kid can land. A few podium finishes, highlighted with a first place in Snowmass, Red emphasizes “style” in Slopestyle, and can give Mark McMorris, Stale Sandbech, and other international heavyweights a run for the medals.


Ryan Stassel comes in representing the United States as the fourth and final to be named to the team, but don’t count him out. The underdog from Anchorage had some major podiums in 2016 and is no stranger to the Big Air circuit. Come drop in time, it could be anybody’s day.

Red Gerard and Jamie Anderson Qualify First in Final U.S. Grand Prix Ahead of 2018 Winter Olympics

Red Gerard and Jamie Anderson are already locks for the 2018 Winter Olympics, but that didn’t stop them from qualifying first in their heats for the 2018 Toyota U.S. Grand Prix Slopestyle Finals set for this Saturday…

On a warm day in Central California, the final U.S. Olympic Qualifiers started ahead of schedule. Due to an approaching storm with rumors of 85+ mph wins settling into Mammoth Mountain tomorrow, the original scheduled day of the qualifier, the field of 21 men and 12 women threw their best stuff on the slopestyle course in hopes of competing on the 2018 Winter Olympic Team declared this weekend. Under partly cloudy skies, with the temperature hovering in the forties, USA riders in both the men and women’s field took all of the spots in this weekends finals except for one. Japanese rider Takura Otsuka was the lone rider to advance from outside the United States, scoring a 78.00 on his last run to just make it in to the field of ten men set to drop Saturday.

The United States’ Red Gerard continued his winning ways from Aspen Snowmass this past weekend by qualifying first with a 94.75. After scoring low on his first run, which included a huge method on his final hit, Red recalculated and looked at ease as he sent it over the 70+ foot jumps and right into first place. Other notable standouts on the day include the young core of Hailey Langland, Ryan Stassel, Brock Crouch, Julia Marino, Ty Walker, Jessika Jenson and Chandler Hunt all qualifying to keep their Olympic hopes alive with a chance to podium this coming weekend.
