Real name: Zoë, but apparently everyone in Cali is fond of just calling me Zo :-)
Sex: Yes please!
Hometown: Cantley, Quebec (Canada)
A little extra: I like dental floss, lipgloss, riding low, getting down, getting jiggy wit it, farmer tans, cankles, driving with my shoes off and the windows down, chocolate milkshakes, high fives, hugs, drinking, photography, art, shredding, my family, dogs, making s*** look cooler than it really is, sunshine, thunderstorms, alignment, lists, bright colors, loud music, fast cars, danger, fire, and knives.
Home mountain: Mont-Cascades. It's a tiny little hill but its home <3. I love the people, the atmosphere, the food, the bar, the local life, the perks, the shenanigans, the parties, the memories, the people crashing at my place who are too wasted to get home. I love the friends who are like family to me now. I love the line I always ride, the two lips you can launch off, the side hit that's perfect for 180s, the one drop at the top under the lift, the park Mike worked so hard to build for us, the mellow spot that's perfect for figure 8 carving with my bro, I both love and hate the fact that its impossible to ride alone. I love this hill and everything it’s been in my life.
Favorite board(s): CAPiTA 152 Outdoor Living, the first Capita I ever rode ;-) Thanks to Steph for dropping this board into my hands. I'm fond of other things being dropped into my hands also...
Favorite bindings: Union Force. I have 3 pairs of Forces, 1 pair of KFC's, and 1 pair of Trilogies (I am clearly a Union whore).
Favorite boots: I was previously super stoked on my Deeluxe Empire Lara SCL boots, but I'm really loving the Burton Sapphires that I recently picked up to replace those with... too bad breaking them in is giving me cankles!
Favorite other gear: Airblaster Onesie, and the matching pink undies Levi and I have.
What terrain do you like to ride? Mostly hard pack groomers, ice coast conditions, been riding park for one season now.
What’s on your iPod these days? Funny story, my mom bought me a 16G iPod for Christmas last year, and my bro bought me helmet headphones. I used them a couple times, but found it too much hassle to ride with music. The iPod got neglected and when I actually wanted to use it for something the screen was dead... plus I hate iTunes.
I use Grooveshark a lot though, check it.
What would be your dream snowboard trip? I think I just had one of those, haha! Riding Northstar for 3 days with great people was pretty top notch for an east coast gal. I've never really been big on traveling but having a reason to go somewhere is kinda nice :-). I'd be happy to shred anywhere with good snow and good people. I wouldn't mind shredding Japan or France.
Why do you spend so much time in the Sierra Snowboard online community? haha... really... I don't spend that much time on here. OK, yes I do.
It all started while I was shopping obsessively like I do for snowboard gear while at work. I stumbled across sierra a couple times while looking up gear on www.thefind.com (one of my fav product search engines). After being brought to sierra a number of times I noticed there was a chat feature and decided this was a great place to spread some hate. I signed up, made an account, and spelt my name wrong! Instant fame. I will never live down SherdbettyZoe. Megabitch and I hit it off from the start we're pretty much sisters, and Jared’s beard and I might as well have dated.
I don't know what it was that drew me back day after day. Maybe it was the hate, maybe it was the love. Now I come around for the few people I cant seem to live without haha. I hate when the US has a holiday... I only recently realized how much I depend on you guys to keep me occupied throughout the day ;-)
Best advice you would give someone new to SierraSnowboard.com? My best advice would be to lurk for about a month so you know how to kick ‘em while they're down..... also don't be stupid or you will be hated on..... and don't talk to Preston he scares the customers away.
Words to live by (e.g. favorite quote, unsolicited advice)? SHE LOVES TO SHRED!
