Jessie Gonzalez: Writer/Editor – “Covering All Things Snowboarding and West Coast”
Growing up as a kid going to Kirkwood is where I first fell in love with snowboarding. Fast forward many years later and I am averaging 40+ days a year on the slopes at various ski resorts.
Favorite Resort: Kirkwood, CA
Rides: 2019 Burton Custom
Alec Wilson: Writer/Editor – “East Coast Resort Connoisseur”
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve migrated from the terrain park to the powder and groomers when skiing. Now I’m a self proclaimed ski teacher of my two children.
Favorite Resort: Stratton, VT
Rides: 22′ K2 Mindbenders
Brianna Lee: Writer/Editor – “Skiing is My Passion and Outlet”
I always love a fresh trail or new ski gear but you’ll never pull Atomics out from under me. We can debate ski brands on lift rides for hours.
Home Resort: Lutsen, MN
Rides: Atomic for life
