Short Bio: Jenny is a slopestyle specialist who has lead proceedings on the world stage for the past 7 years, having won 3 X Games Gold medals (she is the first UK athlete to win an X Games gold medal) amongst countless other top snowboard titles.

Jenny first got into snowboarding after taking a free half hour lesson at the Avon dryslope. She then worked in the French Alps as a chalet maid in Tignes so she could snowboard every day. After a couple of seasons she became a professional snowboarder since then she has been competing at the top international competitions.

Outside snowboarding, Jenny loves surfing and traveling round Cornwall and Devon looking for waves.
