Check out October’s supplement to Future Snowboarding, "The Drift: Snowboarding from her point of view."

“We were in Denver with Jeremy, the filmer, and Dave, the photographer. There were six weeks this winter where it snowed in Denver every weekend. We were there during the third week and we were just going around the city looking for stuff. We saw this possibility for a bomb drop, but by the time we set it up, it was sunset. I went ahead and climbed up there. It was kinda scary at first, but I did it a couple times and we got the shot right as sun went down.

I actually kept hitting it a bit more, but the light was bad. I was trying to 270 off of it, but I couldn’t land it. All of a sudden, I couldn’t drop off of it. After a half hour of hitting it, I couldn’t do it. Finally I said “F$%k it” and 270’d off it and called it a day. Dave claimed it was going to be a cover, but I never believe people when they say that. I didn’t even know until I went to my local shop, Milo sport in Salt Lake, and I was like, “Whoa, hey, what the?” I realized I was on the cover of a mag. That was pretty crazy.”
