My name is Aimee Fuller, I am 19 years old and I am a professional snowboarder from England. However currently living in the Isles of the green clover and lucky charms, that’s right Ireland… well not quite… Northern Ireland.
Home Mountain: half hour away, a slope with dry matting on, not quite comparable though!
My Sponsors: Roxy, Vans, TSA, Bliss Gloves, Star Ski Chalets.
The past month I have been in the US, here is a personal insight into what we got up to…
I started off in Mammoth Lakes California for the Roxy Chicken Jam, the contest got cancelled so we had a pow jam! Fun times. We also got hooked up with “THE JAMMY PACK” coolest invention ever, might I say. Tunes on the go, stylish too… check out our wee dancing video:
And our powder edit:

Next stop LA baby. I went to Venice beach with Jenny Jones, Basa Stevulova and Lesley Mckenna. We rented some bikes, cruised the board walk, one slight issue we came across was the lack of sunscreen. We did end up severly burnt, oh dear Brits on tour again….
Lesley flew back to the UK, myself, Jenny and Basa headed on to Keystone to meet up with the Rest of the Roxy crew Torah, Erin, Robin and Ty. Had a real fun week at Ms Superpark. Set up was AMAZING.
On the way back from Keystone, on the way to the airport there was a winter storm warning in effect and the highway closed, so we had to take the back roads to the airport. We arrived at the airport at 5.30 and the flight took off at 5.50, I have never been so close to missing a flight and making it in our life, we skipped the whole security in Denver airport and ran through the whole airport to make the flight as the door was closing. Relief!!!!
We arrived in Tahoe for Jamie Anderon’s spring park shoot, we where not blessed with the best weather so we traded it up, Kaya Turski and Kim Lamarre where out with us so snowboarders and skiiers switched for the day.
I then went back to LA with Jenny, to spend 2 days relaxing, shopping, eating good food, sunbathing, and working out, we decided that we needed 6 pacs for the summer.. so set ourselves the challenge of not eating rubbish. That challenge still holds… lets see how it goes haha
We spent one afternoon on the dock, Jenny suddenly spotted who she thought was Cindy Crawford, we both got up and chased her over the bridge! And asked for her photo. Oooops it was the wrong person. Not actually Ciny Crawford haha.
I left Jenny in La! to go to Colorado to meet up with good friends Helene Olafsen, Sarka Pancochova and Silje Nordendal and we spent 10 days riding Breckenridge, it was a blast 3 days of real good spring riding and then 7 not so good wintery days. Still good times and I put together this edit of me cruising Breck. Enjoy!
After Breckenridge I headed to Squaw valley for the Red Bull camp where I was with Grete Eliassen, she is rad! and slayed it all week, the set up was epic, airbag’s , and trampoline’s all in the private park. So privalaged to have that opportunity. It was a blast.
Now I am back home in Northern Ireland, before I head to the British Boardtest in Austria next week, can’t wait to get back on snow.
