The rise of Olympian snowboarder Karly Shorr

Those who spend their time on cold, brisk mountains will tell you: they have to be passionate about winter sports to succeed.

Otherwise, harsh temperatures can be quite the deterrent.

For 22-year-old Karly Shorr, however, the cold hasn’t fazed her successful snowboarding career at all.

After a few years of shredding and grinding, Shorr started getting an inkling that this incline could be her career.

It wasn’t long until she became a professional snowboarder and eventual Olympian.
