Yesterday I received a call from the local newspaper that they had been recommended to use me in a local piece in the upcoming Steamboat magazine for next winter. I was pretty amazed that my name was tossed around (thanks Jon!) and the article was on local’s favorite runs/parts of the mountain. It meant today being on the mountain to meet up with them and get a shot for the paper/magazine that they can use.
I was totally up for being the halfpipe girl since I do enjoy riding halfpipe during my ride breaks. I’m still not going pro anytime but I enjoy cranking the music and trying.
So at lunch today I met up with John from the paper who was going to take my photo and it’s a good thing I never went into professional snowboarding/modeling because I can’t control my nerves when the time comes. I’ve ridden pipe thousands of times and today I was soo nervous that every run got worse. But I think we got a shot that might work so we’ll see in the future how it comes out and I’m stoked to be a part of it.
John ready to get the shot
My ride break was short and sweet after working with John for the photo but I made a couple laps through the halfpipipe and mini park again before heading inside. Looking forward to the weekend when I have more time to ride.
