At Tordrillo Mountain Lodge, located 60 miles northwest of Anchorage, Alaska, the 20-year-old from Wanaka, New Zealand, claimed her podium spot in a field of the world’s best all-mountain freestyle snowboarders.
The Natural Selection Tour is a new competition format created by professional snowboarder Travis Rice. The main focus lies in showcasing the progression of freestyle snowboarding in natural environments. In an invite-only competition format, the top riders of freestyle snowboarding battle head-to-head on natural and naturally enhanced terrain, replete with layers of fresh powder snow and obstacles such as trees and cliffs.
