This episode's guest is Kimmy Fasani. Kimmy has been a pioneer in women’s snowboarding since she became the first woman snowboarder to land a double backflip in the park and the powder in 2011.

Aside from being a longtime powerhouse in snowboard film production, Kimmy’s resume also includes a strong social media following and a stack of published photos. She is a vocal ambassador for Boarding For Breast Cancer, Protect Our Winters, LIV Bicycles, and luluemon. Kimmy and her husband, Chris Benchetler- a professional skier married in 2011, are also Co-Owners in Dessert’D Organic Bake Shop, an organic/all natural bakery with a storefront in Mammoth Lakes, CA. They are also co-owners in Juneshine Hard Kombucha, and Marea Coffee.

In this episode, we chat about motherhood and mountains, how she became a sponsored snowboarder, and her life in Mammoth with her two children, Koa and Zeppelin, with her partner, Chris Benchetler. She gives us advice on fueling and planning travel with children and how she finds balance with so many sticks in the fire. We talk about how the mountains and the outdoors have served as mothers for us and she shares her upcoming projects and goals.
