PWDR is stoked to announce the addition of Claudia Avon to their squad! Joining legendary ladies Mercedes Nicoll, Dominique Vallee, Gillian Andrewshenko and Molly Milligan, Avon is a Whistler local, and backcountry madwoman. Check out her edit above, and her welcome from PWDR room, below:

Mississauga, ON (October 1, 2013) – PWDR ROOM is excited to announce the sponsorship of Canadian snowboarder Claudia Avon. Claudia will join the PWDR ROOM pro team consisting of Mercedes Nicoll, Dominique Vallee, Gillian Andrewshenko and Molly Milligan.

Claudia is a Montreal born athlete that now calls Whistler home. At 28 years old she has quietly become a talented rider who has transitioned from winning several Canadian Competitions, including making it to the finals in the 2010 US Open – to now spending most of her time with her sled in the backcountry. Claudia’s humble personality doesn’t reflect her aggressive style on the mountain – she is always looking for the line yet found, and has no issues going for it.

PWDR ROOM is heading into the Winter 13/14 season continuing their focus on three key collections – Trilogy, X5 and Verso. Each line offers highly technical outerwear with a focus on stylish fashion. The PWDR ROOM design team works closely with the athletes to collaborate their ideas, which influence the line each season.

Claudia’s most recent edit makes it easy to understand why PWDR ROOM is so pumped to have her join the team.

Welcome to the team Claudia!
