Barrett Christy has long been an influential member of the snowboarding community. Beginning with her own pro career that helped to break trail for female snowboarders to follow, she has continued to help elevate those around her while simultaneously being a rider who is looked up to by legions of men and women. Congrats on twenty years, Barrett and here’s to twenty more!
From Gnu Snowboards:
Our best rider is a girl.
Gnu Co-Founders Pete Saari and Mike Olson knew what the industry needed when they gave Barrett Christy a pro model. A 20+ year career characterized by contest success, free ride prowess, and unparalleled snowboard progression; Barrett is unreal. An Apple Jacks Box, an Olympic ring, video game appearances, her weight in Winter X Games medals, and 20 years of pro models are just a few of the accolades that make Barrett’s impression on snowboarding everlasting. Barrett put the cherry on top in January receiving Transworld Snowboarding’s Legend Award.
“She elevated the entire brand… She set the tone for progressive women’s snowboarding, showed woman that there were no barriers. She won everything.” – Gnu Co-Founder Pete Saari
Her influence is infectious, and in the process of achieving in her own career she continues to inspire the future of snowboarding. This year we celebrate Barrett and her 20 year pro model, the B PRO, built with progression in mind and guaranteed good times on all terrain! The C3 B-PRO has been refined to perfection over the last 20 years, even down to its core, giving a portion of its proceeds to Breast Cancer awareness through B4BC .
