Karly Shorr came from humble beginnings at Northern Michigan’s Boyne Mountain, but she made a name for herself with a win at the 2010 Mount Snow U.S. Revolution Tour stop. She won another Rev. Tour stop in 2011 and then a took couple more Rev. Tour victories the next year to seal the 2012 Rev. Tour title.

Solid results and a slew of top-ten finishes proved that Shorr was ready for the big leagues in 2013, and then a pair of second-place finishes at the Mammoth Sprint U.S. Grand Prix clinched her a spot on the team headed to Sochi. At the Rosa Khutor Olympic venue, Shorr soared into sixth at the historic slopestyle snowboarding debut.

KARLY SAYS
It was the best year of my life hands down. I came into this season with no expectations and just wanted to do as well as I could. No expectations with really high hopes. The Olympics was the most unreal experience of my life. It was one of those experiences that doesn’t really sink in until you get home. I feel like this season has changed my life completely. This season kicked off the next chapter of my snowboarding and I just want to keep improving. I’m super motivated to keep progressing.

FIRST TRACKS
Karly Shorr began snowboarding because she wanted to hang with her two older brothers on the mountain. Her transition from gymnastics to snowboarding may be responsible for her ability to perform acrobatic tricks on the slopestyle course.

OFF THE SNOW
When she’s not riding or training, Shorr enjoys traveling and heading into the outdoors, especially in Oregon. She also enjoys hiking and swimming in the summertime as well as biking, skateboarding, reading, writing, taking photos, playing the ukulele and hunting.
