She’s your Spirit Animal: Jamie Anderson

Jamie Anderson has the concentration and flight of an eagle, ferocity of a grizzly bear, and the ability 0f a feline to find her feet. She has a snowboard repertoire second to none. The only other rider in her category even coming close may be her inspiration, mentor, and fellow Gnu teammate Barrett Christy.Needless to say, she’s unreal.

The contest circuit has taken kindly to her style, air awareness, consistency, and deep bag of tricks. The world has fallen in love with her riding, smile, and positive perspective. Jamie is mystically in tune with all that is good in the world, from fresh food to frothing over powder days. She lives to do what she loves, and shares the love wherever she ends up.

Over the past few seasons Jamie has found residency on the podium of the world’s highest levels of competition. In the previous season… X Games Euro & US, she won Gold. Burton US Open, Gold. US Snowboard Championships, you know what she got? – GOLD! Her heavy-hitting Slopestyle prowess landed her an ESPY for the Best Female Action Sports Athlete, the TWSnow Rider’s Poll Rider of the Year, and Snowboarder Mag’s Rider of the Year.

In addition to her countless contest appearances, she has made time to excel in other terrain. Traveling to the steep faces of AK and interior British Columbia over the past couple years, filming for the two year Full Moon Film has given her a new arena for hone in on. The movie released earlier this month and to no one’s surprise her talent translated outside of the park. Jamie charged the chutes, rode spine lines and drops on her Ladies Choice, finishing each with the same big smile on her face.

The Ladies Choice is a reflection of her being, and supports any efforts she makes to push the progression of snowboarding. Whether it be podium topping, jaw dropping maneuvers in the park, or taking on new frontiers in the backcountry, Jamie’s TWS Good Wood winning C2 dream board is always there for her. Hand-built in the USA at the World’s Most Environmental Board Factory, the Ladies Choice is produced with quality craftsmanship, and a conscience in line with Jamie’s unreal Eco-ethos at Mervin MFG. Zero Hazardous Waste. 

In all the medals, the awards, and the media, Jamie is still the same kind soul, grateful, and continually giving back to her passion. Thanks for being you 🙂  Here’s to another great season.
