Last year I got 50 days on the mountain - this year we are going for .
I’m taking Avy Rescue and AIARE 2 (just Rec level) and am continuing my mountaineering courses for splitboard mountaineering and leading glacier climbs with The Mountaineers.
Emily Snyder - @phoney.hawk

Maria Brunori - @mariaaaericaaa
I just got a new board, so my goal is to take it to as many mountains as I can during a global pandemic. I also want to do a bit more filming/taking photos
Kenzie Bathurst @kenzbathurst
My goals are to complete a filming project I’m in the midst of creating now, go into the backcountry at least once a week, complete at least one big human powered trip, and learn a new trick off a
To challenge myself more in the Backcountry , film a ton .. I think I have some big things happening but it is going to be super challenging. Also if we do get to compete, I hope to stay in the 4* division and be kind to myself and stay confident
Gold Ambassador Valérie Kindlová @vallery_v
As everything is closed due to the coronavirus and it seems it still will be for a while, my goals had to be changed. Usually I’d be drilling my pirouttes and jumps on ice a preparing my snowboard for winter. Instead of that I focus on my longboard dancing, where I simply want to get more flow and to combine my steps and tricks smoothly.

Who is your hero?
In general all women who follow their dream no matter what. Those who have courage to step out of their comfort zone and do what they love. My SheShreds sisters are exactly like that and I’m happy I can share their journeys. Talking about my idols, it’s longboard rider and yogi Emma Daigle and my yoga mentor Rosibel Marquez.
What is your favorite way to spend the day off?
Sleep till 9am, I’m not much of an early bird, then some nutritious breakfast and go out. My ideal day is the one spent outside. It doesn’t matter if it’s hot or cold day, or choosing longboarding, cycling, hiking or just taking a long walk, being outside and active is always lovely. Exercise in nature makes me always super happy! If I have time and streght afterwards I workout a bit at home and then cook some tasty dinner!
Which songs do you have on your shredding playlist right now?
My shreding playlists contain variety of songs from playful electroswing for longboard dancing for more rocking and fast songs to do go downhill. Some of my favourite songs are f.e. Confussion !! by Cycle, Dead and Above by Eric Fuentes (both from the epic longbaording video Endless Roads by Longboard Girls Crew), Drinkee by Sofi Tukker, Kiara by Bonobo, Bella Belle by Electric Swing Orchestra or Dragons by Caravan Palace. My playlist for longboard dancing can actually be found on Spotify, where I’m simply as vallery_v.
What is one thing that can instantly make your day better?
Doing sport or being active. Give me even small amount of time to do some of my things and I’ll be happy till dusk!
What is your favorite ice cream topping?
It must be strawberry toping on vanilla icecream!

I just want to have fun and have confidence in myself this year The rest will come
Been working on fitness weights and cardio so I can handle my sled better! Ride as many days as possible - we are off to a great start for snow this year already! And of course have FUN!!
My goal is to be able to snowboard this year! I've been dealing with some back problems, but physical therapy is helping. I'm pretty sure the weather gods are helping me heal by not snowing in MI, they're waiting till I am ready to ride!
To fully rehab that knee so skiing can be done to full potential in order to avoid frustration of not being able to shred the awesome stuff my friends do. training to improve my technique in difficult conditions and start to plan some awesome trips for next season since this one won’t be the one to travel to desired destinations due to various reasons...
I want to be able to get out on the mountain more! Working full time at a ski shop in the winter time is hard, I got out on the mountain 3 days last year:( I want to be able to progress my riding and grow my bag of tricks!
This will be my off season, going to try to stay in the gym!
In Feb 2020 I told my husband I was going to take Figure Skating lessons this year. I was worried COVID was going to kill that ... but lo and behold ... here I am already enrolled and active in my sessions!!! I am learning appropriate technique and the teachers are making us use one leg/foot first then right after we learn a skill we have to do it using the other leg/foot!! It's very exciting and rewarding, too
Simply to pay off my season pass before we get shut down again. Hahaha!

Getting myself in better shape for the 2021 rodeo season also to get my side hustle up and going to were its paying for all my horse stuff!
Getting more sledding in!! Thus lots of pow laps hopefully.
My goal is to get a good part together that doesn't involve park. All backcountry, loggs, jumps, and lines!! And more
