Your Name (and Nickname): Whitney (Whit)

Your Age: 26

Your Location (where do you ride mostly): Brighton, Utah, but I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, where Boston Mills/Brandywine was my home resort for many years. BMBW has a combined vertical of 264 feet and 88 skiable acres, whoa!!! 

Weapon(s) of choice:  I love to snowboard, hike, camp, rock climb, fish and even ballet dance. I’m up for any new challenges though! 

 

 

What’s an average day for you like? Work, Snowboard, School…think about snowboarding some more….and ballet class when I can squeeze it in. Currently I am working to earn my Montessori Teaching Certification. I spend several hours a week working towards that. I am also a substitute teacher, which is really great and flexible with my schedule right now. 

Besides your ability and style factor as an athlete, how would you describe your personal style? I always rock a white beanie with a puff  :) 

I bet in your experience you have seen some crazy crashes. Describe one. My own crashes always seem to haunt me a bit more than just seeing someone, so Ill share a crash of my own…I spent a season riding in New Zealand. I was night riding up at Snow Park and really wanted to try hitting the big hand rail, because I didn’t really see any other girls try it. Unfortunately, I did not ollie quite high enough and took several stairs to my face. With a minor concussion and tons of bruises, I was ok and still made it out to go bungee jumping the next day! Not too bad!

What is your favorite trick? I love a good press or a stylish tail grab 

Favorite drink of choice to refresh yourself after a long day of riding/shooting? Roaring Lion Energy Drink 

How would you describe your riding style? Mellow and clean

What’s the trick to riding features and not killing yourself? Always fully commit to what you are doing.

What song(s) do you listen to while riding that puts you in the zone? Anything upbeat and funky that gets me pumped up. “Stayin Alive” by The Bee Gees.

Favorite conditions? Sunny powder days and warm and slushy park days, im happy with either one of those.

Let’s hear your thoughts on how important looking good is to feeling good. “Being” your personal best? Just be comfortable. One less thing to worry about then.

How dangerous do u really think it is compared to what people do in their regular activities? It's only as dangerous as you make it.
