Produced on September 13, 1990, in South Lake Tahoe, California, Jamie Anderson learned to snowboard as a 9-year old. A multi-time gold medalist in her trademark slopestyle event, Anderson in addition has won season tournaments in two of snowboarding’s highest circuits, the TTR World Tour as well as the Winter Dew Tour. One of eight kids, she grew to love the outdoor activities that were portion of a mountain-town lifestyle.
Anderson was homeschooled along with her five sisters, the oldest two showing powerful influences in her life. They introduced her to snowboarding in the age of 9, and all three became part of the snowboard team in the area Sierra-at-Tahoe resort. Jamie Anderson started taking part in regional contests, working her way up to national and junior world championship events.
At 15, Anderson won the Winter X Games slopestyle bronze medal to supplant Shaun White as the youngest medalist in the annals of the favorite winter showcase. She topped that attempt the next year by becoming the youngest girl to win a Winter X Games gold medal. In addition to her success in the X Games, Anderson starred in her sport’s highest professional occasions. She was named the women’s TTR World Tour winner in 2008, 2011 and 2012, and the Winter Dew Tour women’s winner in 2011 and 2012.
Anderson notched her fourth slopestyle gold and seventh overall medal in the Winter X Games in 2013. With slopestyle named an Olympic event for the very first time in the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, she immediately became among the gold medal favorites in her signature event. She also collaborated with her old middle school to come up with a sponsorship program for talented kids that have an interest in snowboarding but lack the funds. In addition to hiking, paddleboarding and camping, Anderson names yoga as among her favourite non-snowboarding actions.
