Iris Lazzareschi first blipped on our radar this past winter at Heavenly when she walked away victorious at the Team Challenge girl’s rail jam. Then we got wind and photos of her sending it over the summer at Mt. Hood from staff photographer Andy Wright. Andy expounds, “This girl Iris Lazzareschi was killing it at Hood. She sent a back one over the whole hip-dudes were barely making it and no other girl was even coming close. She’s the real deal and most definitely needs a check out”. That being said, this is Iris, check her out.-Evan LeFebvre

There’s a new girl in town and her name is Iris Lazz’. Speak of the devil, here she is lofting a massive backside 180 melon over the length of the HCSC hip, atop Mt. Hood, Oregon.
