Jamie Anderson entered the snow scene and the industry has flapped its lips with praise ever since. The media can’t get enough of her unadulterated youthful attitude. Judges are wowed by her unfathomable ability and her sponsors love her no-nonsense way of walking the planet. Fact is, Jamie knows how to win better than anyone in her league.
What Jamie has accomplished at such a young age is not standard practice. At 15, Jamie made her first Winter X Games appearance, bumping Shaun White out of the history books as the youngest medalist in Winter X Games history. In 2007, she won her first women’s slopestyle Gold Medal, becoming the youngest female gold medalist. She’s now one of the most decorated athletes in the sport and leading the charge in trick progression.
What Jamie is not is cocky. She is rooted in South Lake Tahoe, surrounded by her easygoing friends and supportive family. She’s still in love with snowboarding and is still as motivated as ever to see where she can help the sport to grow.
