Petula is 11 years old and lives in Silverton B.C. She loves powder and backcountry boarding. Petula started snowboarding when she was 6, and that same year she started hiking for turns. She tries to get out into the backcountry as much as she can. Luckily for her, she has a dad who is a backcountry ski guide.
Petula spent her early years boarding at Summit Lake Ski Hill, south of Nakusp, a small hill with one t-bar, but some challenging terrain. For the past two years, Petula has been training with the Central Snowboard Academy at Whitewater and RED with her amazing coach, Cali Penner. She’s done some training at Whistler and has competed in a number of races.
When she is not snowboarding, you can find her Nordic skiing, running, surfing, biking or drinking hot chocolate.
