Jamie Anderson is snowboarding's next rockstar, bar none. In 2009 Jamie was voted by Snowboarder Magazine as Female #1 Rider of the Year and by Transworld Snowboarding Magazine as Women's Rider of the Year, two of the most honored awards in snowboarding.
This comes as no surprise since even at a very young age (the youngest rider ever to receive Snowboarder Magazine's Rider of the Year award) Jamie has virtually destroyed all doubt as to her riding abilities, especially in her premier niche, Slopestyle, but also with her backcountry riding in Runway Films "See What I See" and even in the pipe (Jamie took first in the Burton New Zealand Open pipe in 2008, her first pro-level pipe competition ever.)
Besides skills on the hill, Jamie's made a mark for herself with her outgoing and cool demeanor. Snowboardermag.com quoted two of snowboarding's most legendary riders as they spoke up on Jamie's behalf.
"Best all around shredder, tons of podiums, and a punk rock attitude." Danny Kass
"Good video parts, hits huge jumps, wins contests, likes to drink." Peter Line
If earning the respect of those two doesn't say anything about you in snowboarding, then nothing well.
