Ayla Thidling has been getting used to the top spot on the podium this year. Her strong freeride skills are serving her well, whether it’s the Junior Freeride Tour or the French Fries Rookie Fest. She takes her GNU Gateway to the big mountains as her all mountain shred stick and she loves it in the pipe as her freestyle transition slayer.
“After coming 4th at the Chamonix stop I really wanted to do better, and winning today in Fieberbrunn felt fantastic. Now I’m really excited about the next stop in Verbier in March” Ayla 😀
At 14 years old, Ayla often competes as the youngest rider in her 17 and under division. She is regularly posting top scores in every discipline and winning the overall categories thanks to her strength as an all mountain snowboarder. Congratulations Ayla, we are stoked to be along for the magical ride you are on!
