Audrey Doan

What is your nickname? If you have one?
Aud or Audge Podge

Where do you primarily ride?
Primarily at Park City, but I try to change it up every few years. This year will be Northstar and Heavenly!

What made you start snowboarding?
All of my friends at the time all knew how to snowboard, I wanted to start snowboarding so I could hangout with them more. Best decision ever!

What’s your favorite board to ride?
Salomon Gypsy size 143

Favorite riding story if you have one?
I’ve had a lot of awesome times on the mountain! One of my favorite days was learning how to backside board slide on a beginner box with someone who became one of my best friends! We tried all day and fell a lot but motivated each other to keep on going!

Why do you love to snowboard?
I love snowboarding because it’s an escape for me. I live for the moments on the mountain when you’re with all your friends and everyone is hyping each other up and there is no care in the world except for you, that mountain, and the best people. Snowboarding is a passion for me and it makes me remember not to take my life for granted and to just enjoy myself and the little things.

When you aren’t snowboarding what are you most likely finding yourself getting into?
Probably something outdoors. I love trying new things, and have recently picked up surfing! I want to buy a surfboard and spend summers on the beach and winters on the slopes ♥️

What is your favorite area on the mountain? Jumps, rails, natural terrain?
I don’t have a favorite area on the mountain. I like to enjoy everything, it really just depends on the day. If it’s a sunny blue bird day you’ll probably find me in the park, powder days I’ll be in the trees.

Where do you see yourself in five years snowboarding wise?  Traveling to another country?
I’m hoping to be in a lot more comps, and landing bigger tricks. Throughout the next few years I really want to progress more on jumps and rails! I could see myself potentially living in Australia, or Switzerland for a while!

Do you have a pre-boarding ritual or something you need to have on you at all times on the mountain?
I always wear my Third eye pinecone necklace on the mountain. I feel like it’s my good luck charm!
