Live a Life Beyond Imagination

Shannon Dunn Downing

I was snowboarding’s first U.S. Olympic medalist.  As a pioneer in the sport of snowboarding and one of the most influential female riders in the industry, I created opportunities in snowboarding for women where there weren’t any before.
I know what it’s like to struggle under immense pressure and expectations. I know you feel that way too, sometimes every day.
I want to share my passion and life experiences with you. I want to inspire you to step out of your comfort zone to live a life beyond imagination.
