The first woman to ever land a double backflip in park and powder, Kimmy Fasani is based in Mammoth Lakes, Ca and is both fearless and passionate about progression and leading a healthy active lifestyle. She rides with the boys in the backcountry all year long, but her legacy to women’s snowboarding has emerged in the evolution of her annual Amusement Park event. This event takes place in the spring and brings professional female riders from all over the world together for a week of riding features designed exclusively for them. In 2014, she incorporated the event’s first ever Burton Girls Ride Day, which hosted nearly 100 women from around the country for yoga and a day of riding with the pros. Kimmy's commitment to progression and giving back to snowboarding fits naturally with her love for the outdoors and living a healthy and active lifestyle.
