Bio

Bred to shred with brothers Abe and Elijah, Hannah Teter is pure, unadulterated snowboarding royalty. In 2006, nursing her knee back to health (an injury that required two surgeries in short succession), she went to the Olympic Winter Games in Torino and returned with Gold. The U.S. Olympic Committee named her “Sportswoman of the Year” and she won an ESPY Award for “Best Action Sports Female.” Ben & Jerry’s even released a new flavor in her honor: Maple Blondie. She spent the remainder of the year focused on humanitarian causes. In 2008, in partnership with World Vision, Hannah set up a charity called Hannah’s Gold, supplying the village of Kirindon, Kenya with wells, water filtration, education and schools. She’s partnered with PETA to protect Canadian seals, Children’s International on behalf of children in Honduras and the Philippines, and many more. Following the Park City Grand Prix in 2010, Hannah donated her $10,000 winnings to aid survivors of the Haiti earthquake.
