Raised in the sunshine and slush of Big Bear, California, Hana has spent a decade plus living the pro-rider life; nonstop shredding on all terrain, all over the world. From her early days doing damage in the parks of Bear Mountain and Mammoth to producing heavy film parts in the proving grounds of the Whistler backcountry, to the latest chapter—a home-base in Washington where she localizes Mount Baker and charges the B.C. backcountry with a crew of snowboarding’s leading ladies, Hana is in a state of constant progression.
