Community Cup: Jamie Anderson and powering progression in women’s snowboarding
Jamie Anderson has become a household name both in and outside of snowboarding. She is one of the most decorated riders ever, with wins spanning from the Olympics, to X Games, to the U.S. Open and beyond. What Jamie has shown to the women’s snowboarding community is how natural talent can be applied to reset long-thought boundaries in both our lifestyle and be a force for change. It’s beneficial of us to be conscious about where our food comes from, what’s in it, and what happens to the waste that is produced throughout the entire process. Jamie Anderson is undoubtedly a role model for anyone who wants to have a lasting, positive impact on our world. That’s why she was invited to compete in the Community Cup at Keystone, Colorado, an event with the purpose of promoting not only snowboarding, but sound wellness in all aspects of life.
What is the Community Cup? It is a place for female riders to join together to intertwine snowboarding, music, community and sustainability is interwoven into one single experience. The concept was created from professional riders Chanelle Sladics and Kjersti Buaas to show that it was time for a progressive event based that is designed by women, for women. By bringing together some of the best riders in the world on a course meant specifically for them, it resulted in positivity, progression and a zero-waste mentality that made the Community Cup a truly remarkable experience.
