OTHER PLACES TO FIND HER

Torah Bright exists in a category all of her own. A snow lover since birth, Torah was skiing at age 2 and by 11 she had broken into the snowboarding scene. Torah joined the Roxy team in 1999 and has gone on to dominate competitions around the world, including the TTR World Tour, Global Open Series, FIS World Cups, Winter X Games, and of course, podium finishes at two Winter Olympics. Torah splits her time between her home of Salt Lake City, her training ground of New Zealand, and her homeland of Australia. In 2011, she focused on backcountry riding and added big powder jumps, steep lines, and snowmobile rallying to her formidable arsenal. In 2013 Torah dropped back into the contest scene with force, this time attacking halfpipe, slopestyle and snowboard cross. After a successful start to her 2014 season with a Dew Tour win, Torah went on to become the first and only person in the world to qualify and compete in three snowboard events at the 2014 Winter Games. We couldn’t be more proud of Torah, she never ceases to amaze us.
