It’s no exaggeration to say that Jamie Anderson is one of the most prolific athletes to ever strap into a snowboard. A bona fide hall of famer with wins in every major contest, including back to back Olympic gold medals, Jamie is truly in a league of her own.
Triple threat doesn’t even begin to cover it, not only a dominating force on the Big Air and Slopestyle circuit, but with projects like Full Moon and Unconditional Jamie managed to bridge the gap between the competitive sphere and a seasoned filmer, and then with her involvement in the ground-breaking Natural Selection Tour she made herself a force to be reckoned with taking her skills outside the park ropes. An impressive résumé, no doubt.
“Her legacy is far bigger than the sport of snowboarding”
Jamie is grounded to the point of possibly even underselling her talent, she’s the antithesis of a boastful winner, and on the scarce occasion it happens, she’s graceful in defeat- a rare quality for one so accustomed to gracing the top of the podium. At 31 years old, Jamie has been dominating the game for over a decade, and she refuses to let up even the tiniest amount of steam, that’s the grit and perseverance that’s allowed her to become the record breaking athlete she is today.
Jamie’s involvement in community outreach programmes, snow-based philanthropy and climate based initiatives have also made it crystal clear that her legacy is far bigger than the sport of snowboarding.
