There’s no greater example of how finding your frontier can change your life than professional snowboarder and outdoor enthusiast; Ryan Hudson. Living in a group home in San Diego, CA, a love of winter sports didn’t seem on the radar for 14-year-old Hudson. However, when a local outreach group offered to take him and a few others up to the mountains, it ignited a passion for snowboarding that hasn’t wavered since.
“Snowboarding has taught me that I belong wherever I am.” – Ryan Hudson
When Ryan isn’t ripping bottomless powder and chasing peaks in the backcountry, he continues to pay it forward as a volunteer to help underprivileged kids discover opportunity and adventure in their own lives.
“My goal in life isn’t for people to remember me or to leave a legacy behind. While I’m here I just want to be the best person that I can and be a good human. I’m just lucky enough to be a snowboarder!” – Ryan Hudson
