Check out the GoPro POV footage of Jamie Anderson landing a massive frontside 1080 over the snow castle at Nine Queens – making her only the second female to do so in snowboarding history.
There’s been a lot of chat recently about the rate progression of women’s snowboarding – with some claiming that with very few, if any, female big air contests on the circuit, female progression has begun to stagnate.
Sessionning Nine Queens at sunrise today was magic, and I felt inspired and fuelled by the pink sky insane mountain backdrop, and the sick castle jump!
Jamie Anderson has helped to push that notion even further from this truth this week by stomping a massive frontside 1080 mute at Nine Queens in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis.
“I landed a decent Front 10 at Breckenridge last week, but wasn’t super stoked on my style.” said Jamie, adding: “Sessionning Nine Queens at sunrise today was magic, and I felt inspired and fuelled by the pink sky insane mountain backdrop, and the sick castle jump! With the sun peaking at 7am I was down to do the 10! I stomped my second try and was definitely on cloud 9.”
With her bolts frontside 10, Jamie joins swiss rider Sina Candrian as the only other female rider to have stomped the trick. Although there’s no wide angle footage of Jamie’s trick yet, the GoPro POV footage is just as impressive, giving us a pretty solid idea of just how big the kicker really is.
It’s certainly another monumental moment in women’s snowboarding and we hope that the trick will contribute to the driving force fueling the overall progression of women’s snowboarding.
