The 50 Standout Moments of the Snowboarding Season

How many of these did you miss?

Snowboarding makes the front pages of every major newspaper in the UK. How cool is that?

I may be biassed with this at number one, but I’m British, so what the hell. Jenny Jones already had an illustrious career littered with X-Games medals, Burton Open podiums and others alongside inspiring a generation of UK competitive riders. But by her own admission, by the time Slopestyle was announced as an Olympic discipline for Sochi, her career was winding down.

An ankle injury and a bad concussion just before Christmas 2013 meant she went into Sochi with a chance of a medal, but it was just a chance.

And then she only went and bloody did it. Along with the rest of the UK snowboard community, I managed to get something stuck in both eyes when Jenny’s medal was cemented… odd that eh?
