At 21 years old, she's already accomplished more than any other female slopestyle snowboarder from the Midwest. She's topped podiums in worldwide competitions; is a member of the U.S. Pro Slopestyle Snowboard Team; and claimed a solid sixth place finish in the Sochi Winter Olympics. We, of course, love that it all began at Boyne Mountain.
It's easy to assume, by the mountains of medals Karly Shorr has already accumulated, that she's been grinding rails and rocking jumps since she could walk. After all, her family is practically snowboarding royalty in Michigan: both brothers, Kyle and Kevin, are great riders, coaches and competition judges. Her mom, Mo, ran USSA snowboarding competitions in Northern Michigan for a decade (ask any respectable rider in the mitten state about the Shorrs, and you'll no doubt be treated to a "Shorr" family story.)
