The first Olympic qualifier of the season took place in Breckenridge Dec. 12-15th at the Dew Tour and GNU’s snowboard technology outperformed the competition in both women’s events! GNU snowboards stepped up to the competition with progressive geometries, innovative camber combos, and balance through asymmetry to help Jamie Anderson and Kaitlyn Farrington land solid runs in their events.
