One of the few women to have graced the cover of Transworld Snowboarding magazine, Erin Comstock is known for her smooth park style, powder prowess, and one dazzling smile. A legit film-pro, she’s an inspiration to female riders who are looking for a career outside of the "contest-pro" box. Over the years Erin has filmed with Standard, Runway, Stance, Park City, Misschief, Vans, and of course, Roxy.
A true child of the mountains, Erin grew up snowboarding in the Lake Tahoe area. She played soccer at San Jose University before transferring to the University of Utah and the nearby shred haven of the Wasatch Mountains. Erin has called Salt Lake City home ever since, where she takes full advantage of the urban jibs, the snow playground at Park City, and the Utah backcountry.
