Last, but very much not least, Victoria Jealouse was the fore-mother of female snowboarding as it stands today. For nearly two decades, she’s battled against adversity, becoming the stand-out female backcountry snowboarder of her day. From climbing the spines of Alaska to shredding the untouched faces of BC, she has truly progressed the scene of big mountain snowboarding.
Her part in Teton Gravity Research’s 2007 film Anomaly shows exactly why Victoria made a name for herself. Just check that smooth drop at 0.33. When viewed in the context of all these other riders, she may just seem like another backcountry shredder – but Victoria really was the first to stomp it and show the world exactly what girls can really do.
