About Kelly

Clark has been dominating competitive snowboarding for 17 years. In the process, she has changed the way women ride. In collecting more than 70 career wins, the 33-year-old Vermont native has pushed the sport with amplitude and technical, aggressive riding. Her legacy already defined, Clark remains a force in women's halfpipe and continues to add accolades. History's most prolific snowboarder has earned two ESPYs (including Best Female Action Sports Athlete in 2015), 14 X Games medals (7 gold), three Olympic medals, five World Snowboard Tour titles, six U.S. Grand Prix titles and eight U.S. Open titles. She established the Kelly Clark Foundation in 2010 to help provide access to the sport for underprivileged snowboarders.
