There are very few women in snowboarding that have had the same impact as Leanne Pelosi.

As we speak. “Our Backyard” and the majority of the winter climates are starting to see more and more snow so quite watching these videos and get out there it’ll be the best move you make all week.
The Grand Finale of 2012 will culminate with footage from Shaun McKay, Leanne Pelosi and our great friend and brother Aaron Robinson and the Manifest crew. Plain and simple, snowboarding kicks ass and anyone lucky enough to ride is blessed with the opportunity.
