  1. 5 things no one knows

    Kelly Clark

    As this long and crazy 2014 season comes to a close, here's some intel on our sport and what we're doing in the offseason. What you might not know about snowboarders... 1. We're wannabe beach bums. You might think snowboarders live for winter, and w...

  2. Ending the season with a bang

    Kelly Clark

    I'll always have a special place in my heart for the Burton U.S. Open. Until two years ago when they moved it to Vail, Colo., it was only nine miles away from where I grew up in Vermont. So I think it's safe to say I have more appreciation for those ...

  3. Dropping back in

    Kelly Clark

    I'm in Vail, Colo. for the U.S. Open this weekend. My luggage, not so much. And since my snowboard is part of that luggage, I didn't get to practice yesterday! Thankfully I just talked to a friend who happened to be at the Denver airport, and he dug ...

  4. Pressure makes medal sweeter

    Kelly Clark

    Sometimes it's easy to focus on the colors of medals, but what it comes down to is the personal victories and what I accomplished to get there. I was proud of my bronze in Vancouver, and I'm proud of this one, too. To be able to perform under that pr...

  5. Excited that it's finally here

    Kelly Clark

    It's time! I'm just getting my life wrapped up before I leave for Sochi in the morning. It snowed about a foot here today so I've been shoveling, packing and mailing checks -- you know, basic life stuff! The X Games went really well for me last...

  6. Ready for liftoff

    Kelly Clark

    Last month, I won the U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix, which gave me unbeatable points in the Olympic Qualifiers and a virtual lock on Team USA. My goal was to go home for Christmas having secured my spot on the team, and I pulled it off. But it was...

  7. Olympic qualifying time

    Kelly Clark

    Our first day of practice in Breckenridge, Colo. was, to put it mildly, classically cold. It was minus-24 degrees, to be exact. Basically that means I wear everything I own. I have both hand warmers and toe warmers. And I have an expedition-weigh...

  8. Resting and recharging

    Kelly Clark

    Some of my competitors are still in New Zealand right now, getting time on snow, but I'm content to be at home in Mammoth Lakes, Calif., working on my fitness -- plus winterizing my house, watching movies and going to the park with my friends who hav...

  9. Right where I want to be

    Kelly Clark

    I spent a little time riding pipe in Mount Hood, Ore., where the U.S. snowboard team goes to train on snow over the summer, and it's no secret the Olympics are coming. The intensity is high and people have stronger emotions than normal. Everyone is w...

  10. Moving on to surf season -- eventually

    Kelly Clark

    I just got back home from France 15 minutes ago, so I'm pretty ready to crash, but I wanted to give the download from my season-ender at the X Games in Tignes. It was a tough contest, so I was psyched to walk away with the win. I was hoping to wo...

  11. The calm before X

    Kelly Clark

    After being on the road for what seemed like forever, I had about a week where I was able to relax and decompress at home in Mammoth Lakes, Calif., before I headed to the X Games in Tignes, France. So, what did I do? I kept myself busy with ...

  12. Two epic competitions

    Kelly Clark

    You may not know this about Sochi, the site of next year's Olympic Winter Games, but it's actually a summertime resort. It's on the Black Sea, and it's where a lot of Russians take their vacations. There are even three kinds of indigenous palm trees ...

  13. Suspense around X Games gold

    Kelly Clark

    If you thought Saturday's X Games SuperPipe final was suspenseful to watch, I can tell you it was just as much of a nail-biter in person. In classic contest form it started snowing right when we were supposed to go off. It hasn't snowed much this who...

  14. I'm ready for Winter X Games

    Kelly Clark

    I began snowboarding when I was only 7, and I like to say I started before it was cool. There was no Olympics or X Games. They barely let snowboarders on the mountains! Back then, I was the only girl among a pack of guys. Now, you go on the mountain ...
