Kaitlyn Farrington takes a break from it all in the BC Backcountry

Yalda Walter

Kaitlyn’s season has been one hell of a ride, she sky rocketed into snowboarding’s hall of fame by blowing everyone’s mind at the Olympics and snagged Gold in halfpipe. 

Farrington went from being relatively unknown to touring all the heavy US talk shows and even squeezed in a hand-shake with USA’s smoothest president to date, Barack Obama.

After an stressful promo tour through the states, she decided to leave behind phone, laptop and TV cameras to spend some time on split boarding tracks in British Columbia. She has no problem swapping a five star hotel for a tent and pushing herself to the next level.

It is also comforting to see, that even top athletes like Kaitlyn can have a hard time hiking up on a split board, because doing that is bloody exhausting not just for normal people.
