O’Brien is the top Canadian slopestyle snowboarder, having been crowned World Champion in 2013. Spencer also competed for Team Canada at Sochi 2014. She has earned a reputation as one of the athletes pushing the sport of slopestyle to new heights.

That front nose 270 pretzel was almost as beautiful as Spencer O’Brien is.
