Women's Reader's Choice: Anna Gasser
Anna Gasser had the season of a lifetime, landing on nearly every major podium the world over, and it seems that the audience took notice, as evidenced by her win in the Women's Reader's Choice category. This award recognizes pro snowboarders who have broken down the barriers of our little sub-culture and burst out onto a mainstream stage across the globe, and Anna's just getting started. With the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang right around the corner, she's a surefire favorite to medal and if that happens, Anna is going to go from pro snowboarder to full-on celebrity, blanketing magazines and televisions all over the world, and we can't wait to tag along for the ride.
