Jamie Anderson, a South Lake Tahoe native, is easily considered one of the top female snowboarders in the world.
And she’s headed to the 2012 Winter X Games along with Sierra-at-Tahoe team riders, Hannah Teter, and Maddie Bowman. Go get em girls!
It’s clear that Jamie dominates slopestyle and big air competitions all over the globe. From grom to female snowboard domination, we’ve followed Jamie through X Games Golds, TTR Championships, Signature Billabong outerwear lines, Rider of the Year, Dew Tour Championships, and Burton Open Championships. In the midst of a hectic travel and contest season, we’re happy to know that Jamie keeps it real right here at her home mountain.
She was even awarded Female Rider of the Year by both TransWorld SNOWboarding and Snowboarder Magazines in 2009.
Jamie is training hard these days, hoping to stay on top of the competition and win a place on the women’s halfpipe team, as her main event, slopestyle, is not an Olympic event. “The level of women’s riding is insane these days,” commented Jamie during some recent downtime in South Lake Tahoe . “This summer, all of the girls were going so big in New Zealand doing bigger tricks than ever. The competition is going to be intense this winter and I can’t wait.”
Jamie is a member of the Sierra-at-Tahoe Elite TEam.
