About Kjersti

Kjersti is a seasoned X Games veteran who has an effortless, natural style that makes her so much fun to watch on a snowboard. The Norwegian earned a bronze medal in Big Air on her home turf at X Games Oslo in 2016, her third overall X Games medal (three bronze). At 35 years old Kjersti is still at the top of the game—a feat that can be credited to her work ethic, healthy lifestyle and spiritual approach to everything she does in life. A huge fan of Big Air contests, watch for Kjersti's frontside 1080 at Aspen in 2017. She's a four-time Olympian ('02, '06, '10, '14) who has halfpipe bronze from Torino in 2006, and is looking towards her fifth Olympic appearance at Pyeongchang in 2018.
