BIOGRAPHY

Silje Norendal was basically raised with a snowboard strapped to her feet. She started snowboarding when she was four at her home resort in Kongsberg, Norway and competed in her first contest in 1999 when she was six. Some of her biggest inspirations were (and are) Kjersti Buaas and Jamie Anderson, whose legendary footsteps she has skillfully begun to follow.

These days, at the age of 21, Silje is one of the bright lights in women’s snowboarding. With a riding style that brings together a combination of progressive tricks and smooth style, Silje earn spots on some of the biggest podiums of the snowboarding world. In 2011 she got third at the Burton US Open and second at the European Winter X Games, and last season she won her first X Games Gold in Tignes. Watch for her to be a major contender for the podium – while competing against her heroes – in Slopestyle in Sochi.
