Annie Boulanger has it figured out. Continuously bouncing between between tropical, surf-laden locales and snowy backcountry destinations, the Whistler-based snowboarder is living a life enviable by anyone with a shared love of the mountains and ocean. She’s on a permanent vacation, and not the kind with an emphasis on lounging around sipping umbrella drinks or spiked cocoa.
At home or traveling, Annie is getting after it. It shows in her ability charge double overhead surf and big-mountain lines with confidence uncommon for someone of either gender. But what Annie has accomplished in her journeys around the globe goes beyond surfing or snowboarding. Traveling to her is as much about meeting people and experiencing new cultures as it is barrels or descents.
