As evidenced by her TransWorld Rookie Of The Year nomination, people are talking about “Silli” Mittermà…ller. But she just wants to give it up for “all the girls who push snowboarding to the next level: Leanne Pelosi, Natasza Zurek, Kjersti Buaas, Amanda Mourant, Chanelle Sladics, Emily Akkerblom, Alexis Waite, Kelly Clark, and Anne-Fleur Marxer.” Silvia’s results in both slopestyle and halfpipe competition are consistent, and her style is compelling.-C.D.
