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, traveling round Cornwall and Devon in her van and spending time with family and friends.
