Growing up in Michigan, snowboarding was always there for us. It was a way to get outside and be with the people that meant the most. Many opportunities came up with sports following my childhood. I turned down all of them to pursue my love for the sport of snowboarding. I have been living in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado for 7 years. Snowboarding has been a blessing and everyone who takes part in this sport should remind themselves often of how thankful we are that we have it along our journey.
