Why do you love to Snowboard? Surrounding myself with creative people and spending time in the mountains enjoying the snow is super important to me. Snowboarding allows me to challenge myself and progress in both physical and mental challenges that cross over into every day life.

Most interesting non-snow related fact about Richie: In 2012 I donated a kidney to my Dad. One of the most awesome things we have ever done together!
