White Noise: Leanne Pelosi

Rider: Leanne Pelosi Anchorage AKPhoto: erin hogue

Leanne Pelosi is an all around ripper. She is equally at home in jumplines and pillow lines, and her finesse is apparent no matter what terrain she chooses to point her snowboard down. The past season, Leanne spent time filming for Airblaster’s Gone Wild series and we are more than looking forward to seeing the results of her efforts. Because of her multi-faceted approach to snowboarding, we figured her taste in music must mirror this eclectic style and so we tapped Leanne to share some of the songs that make up her playlist for the piste. As the season ramps up and we all get excited for park laps and powder turns, Leanne offers some snowboarding inspiration through the music that gets her stoked to shred. Enjoy.
