I am a the wise and experienced shred betty, recently coined Shred Mama from above mentioned betty, Alix Klien. Why does she call me Shred Mama? Well because while all other women my age are having babies I’m fighting all nurturing senses except the one to further nurture my need, drive, and addiction to be in the mountains. And I love sharing my experiences with other woman jazzed to make adventure their lifestyle, not just a speed bump in an otherwise mundane existence. My mom put me on skis at a very young age in Pennsylvania, chairlifts were babysitters and the cafeteria was a backup. I traveled west looking for a kick ass mountain with something that resembled a college nearby, hence Crested Butte. Since then I’ve competed in big mountain snowboarding all over the world, winning the 2009 Freeride World Tour Championships. These days I’m a ski patroller at the Butte and a guide for CS Irwin Cat Skiing, on two planks! Currently I surf my couch and the internet like its going out of style. When you play everyday you know you’re time will come. I broke my femur Dec. 11, 2010 and have started having walking dreams. You gotta walk to ride!
