We Love Snow - Ashlyn

Monday, October 23, 2017

While most of us were just getting into the sport at 10 years of age, Ashlyn was already nationally ranked with more podiums and medals to her name than many of us could even dream of.

 

Currently ranked 7 th in the nation for USASA Boardercross for her age group and with a Top 10 finish at USASA 10-11 Girls Boardercross at Copper Mountain and 3 rd place Giant Slalom (snowboard) finish at Copper, this really was a great year for Ashyln. Now as the days grow shorter, and the touch of frost returns to the mornings, we know Ashyln is already dreaming of this year’s podium s and what it’s going to take to beat the older girls.

But it’s more than just competing that brings her back to the mountain. It’s her friends and coaches on the Mount Snow Comp Team , along with the freedom to explore the 100 acres of playground we call Carinthia Parks that makes this truly an amazing place to be a kid. Whether progressing her skills on the 150+ features the parks have to offer, or just ripping around the woods with friends in search of powder stashes, this really is her happy place.

We thrilled to have Ashlyn as one of our extended family, and can’t wait until the day we get to count her among Olympic ladies who got their start here like Devin Logan and Kelly Clark. Until then Ashlyn, just remember the words of Ben and Jerry’s founder Jerry Greenfield “If it’s not fun, why do it!”

Take a look at Ashlyn’s story, it’s a great reminder of why we all fall in love with snow.  Ride on Ashyln, ride on!
