Filming for her first video part at age 9, this midwest child phenom was getting attention on the slopes before most of us could even link turns. We talk with Alexis about the importance of inclusion, the progression of women’s snowboarding, perfectionism, fundamentals, not fitting in, mental health, park psychology, keeping a positive headspace, nature's Xanax, and so much more. At a young age, snowboarding began to feel like a job to her and after being dropped by a major sponsor, she felt like she lost her identity. In the past several years, she's hit a major resurgence and is again a contender against any rail rider, male or female. Join us on this weeks episode of The Bomb Hole to find out how she discovered her passion for the sport again, got new sponsors, won contests, filmed video parts, and carved her own path to get where she is today in the world of snowboarding.
