Brief Biography:
Born and raised in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, Gold started out on skis at age three. At seven years-old Gold first tried snowboarding, and it took her some time to fall in love with the sport. Through her older brother Taylorís encouragement she stuck with snowboarding, and it has paid off. With her effortless style Gold is well on her way to becoming a respected figure in the snowboarding world.

At 17 years-old, Gold is not your typical high school senior. She has two X Games medals under her belt, an FIS World Champion title, and two silver medals from the Youth Olympic Games and many more podium finishes. In the 2012-2013 season Gold was at X Games as an alternate and she proved her mettle by taking third to two well-seasoned snowboard peers.

Training hard in the summers has paid off in the form of two podiums at the Olympic qualifiers as well as a spot on the women's snowboard halfpipe Olympic team. As one of the brightest stars in snowboarding at her young age, Gold has the makings for longevity and represents the next generation of snowboarders.

In her spare time she is out in the pasture at home in Steamboat Springs with Sparky and Bugs, her horses. She also likes to barrel race at the local rodeo.
