I really don't know, because I think there are lots of girls who want that too.
It's too easy to say that I think I am one of those girls, but I don't have the opportunity to prove that haha. But I think when I had lived in the mountains and could board everyday with the good guys, I would try so much more stricks. But like I said: that's easy to say because it's not what it is right now.
It's great that you aim high. Hopefully we see you taking women's snowboarding to a new level

As for others, I'm not sure I can answer that. I guess society kind of shapes our values in different ways than men. I don't know many women that are really really ambitious about sports to the degree that men are... like they sit around and fantasize about being star football players or snowboarders. So a lot of women set different priorities. Of course, there are some women who are ambitious with sports, but overall, you might have like 10,000 men competing for some event, constantly struggling to come up with new moves to make the qualifications, while you might have, 5,000 women (with admittedly less physical ability) competing in the women's category. When you have more people competing, you have a bigger chance that someone with good natural ability is applying their gifts to the art. You're probably going to get a significant difference in skill compared to a smaller pool of talent. I'm just making up numbers.
