Katie Ormerod: White Rose

Katie Ormerod’s path to the top of her sport hasn’t exactly been conventional.

She grew up in Yorkshire, England, nowhere near the Alps, and her first taste of snowboarding was on a dry slope near her home.

Proving that geography doesn’t necessarily dictate a dream, Katie not only made history at 16 years of age as the first female snowboarder to land a backside double cork 1080 but four years on from that auspicious moment, Katie’s passion for progression has grown in leaps and bounds.

In her latest film project with the GoPro team, titled White Rose, Katie takes it back to the beginning and gives an exclusive look at her journey so far.
