Some words from Erin qualifying:
This [last] winter was a wild ride, and I had so much fun. My goal was to make it to the Freeride World Qualifier Finals [last] year, and up until that point balancing work and snowboarding felt pretty good. Qualifying for the Finals, and having 3 events in March (all over the US & Canada) definitely pushed me to my limits though. I am so lucky to have had an amazing team to work with at the Fall Line Snow School, which allowed me to take the time I needed to compete while still fulfilling my role as Director. Their support was invaluable though, as was RED Resort’s, and I have so much gratitude for them! Thanks to all of you, you know who you are!
Who knew those three Finals events would be a clean sweep in the end?! That was an amazing series of events, and being the Women’s Snowboarding Champion of the Region 2 Freeride World Qualifiers is an unreal feeling.
I can’t wait to travel the world and snowboard with some amazing women. I am so grateful for this opportunity, and I’ll be riding some insane venues with the best of the best out there. It’s totally unreal still, and it’s going to be the most exciting and challenging thing I’ve ever tackled. I’m stoked! Let’s go!
