Kimmy learned to love the snow early – skiing at age two and snowboarding by age nine. She quickly found that her fearless approach to life fit perfectly with her passion for snowboarding. At 15 years old, Kimmy had quick amateur success and was crowned the USASA National Slopestyle Champion for three years in a row. These results gave her the confidence to graduate early from high school in 2002 so she could dedicate more time to being on snow.
In 2011, Kimmy became the first female snowboarder ever to land a double backflip in both the park and the powder, a landmark achievement in the history of women’s riding. “Living a healthy and active lifestyle helps me stay strong and prepared for snowboarding. Being able to support and be a voice for B4BC is very important to me because I have lost multiple family members to cancer, and awareness is the first step to protecting ourselves.”
