Hi Olivia, how’s 2018 been going off for you?

2018 has been pretty great so far! I’ve been traveling all over the northwest and Canada with Windells Academy and have gotten to ride a bunch of new resorts I’ve never been to before.

How was the 17/18 season? Any highlights?

My 17/18 season went really well! I had a great competition season and even got on the podium for slope at USASA nationals!

What do you have planned for this summer?

This summer I am planning on going to Mt. Hood for a little over a month to train and I also just got back from Project Gold at Mammoth!

Do you have a trip planned for this upcoming season that you’re most excited about?

I don’t have any specific trips planned yet, but I am planning on doing Rev Tour so I will most likely take a trip over to Mammoth and somewhere over on the East Coast, which I am really excited about.

Are there any snowboarders that you look up to or that inspire you?

Yeah, I really look up to Kaitlyn Farrington, Julia Marino, and Anna Gasser.

Any advice you received when you were just getting started that has influenced you?

Don’t be afraid to try things outside of your comfort zone.

Favorite thing to do off the snow…

Skate at my local park and edit videos.

Favorite music to jam out to…

I like a lot of pop and rap music but some of my favorite artists to listen to right now are Lil Uzi Vert and Post Malone.

Any last thank you's or shout outs?

Thanks to Monster for the support this year! Also thank you to Windells Academy and my coach Tommie Bennett for really helping me further my snowboard career this past season and thanks to my parents for always supporting me.
