Boyne Mountain – Ride with Karly Shorr Weekend – March 25 – 26, 2017

Ramshead Terrain Park

At 22 years old, she’s already accomplished more than any other female slopestyle snowboarder from the Midwest. She’s topped podiums in worldwide competitions; is a member of the U.S. Pro Slopestyle Snowboard Team; and claimed a solid sixth place finish in the Sochi Winter Olympics. In January 2017, Karly even competed in her first X Games competition. We, of course, love that it all began at Boyne Mountain.

It’s easy to assume, by the mountains of medals Karly Shorr has already accumulated, that she’s been grinding rails and rocking jumps since she could walk. After all, her family is practically snowboarding royalty in Michigan: both brothers, Kyle and Kevin, are great riders, coaches and competition judges. Her mom, Mo, ran USSA snowboarding competitions in Northern Michigan for a decade. Back to Karly and those medals…

And for one weekend, Karly will be “coming home” to Boyne Mountain to give you a chance to ride with her. For two days, Saturday, March 25 and Sunday, March 26 from 1-4pm, you can hit the park with an Olympian, Karly Piper Shorr.
