Hana Beaman made her name with big competition wins in the early 2000s. Since then she's seamlessly transitioned into dominating backcountry around the world and is one of the leading female riders around. Beaman began as a slopestyle star beginning in 2003 when she won the Burton US Open. In the years that follwoed she added medals from the Burton NZ Open, Nippon Open and Winter X-Games. She was a a staple part of the all girl film production outfit, Misschief Films. Following on from a chance meeting with Travis Rice, Beaman became more and more focused on filming and exploring the backcountry of Rice's backyard of Jackson Hole. In 2011, Beaman was featured in a series of Snowboarder Magazine Webisodes and she devoted all of 2012 to filming and not competing. Hana Beaman was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, but now resides in Big Bear Lake, CA and Salt Lake City, UT. She has been competing in snowboarding competitions since 1998 and has been achieving top 10 rankings in all competitions she has entered since 2002. Hana now balances slopestyle competitions with gnarly riding in the middle of nowhere. She has the skills and the style to excel at both and has become an icon of not just women's snowboarding but the entire sport.
