Steamboat Springs native Arielle Gold has made a big impact in halfpipe snowboarding. A consistent podium threat, she has a strength and style that set her apart from the field. With a bronze medal at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games, Gold has proven that she's one of the Best in the World.
When you're not not snowboarding, what are you doing for fun?
Riding my horse Sparky, mountain biking, hiking and taking classes.
If you could be a Star Wars Character, who would you be and why?
Yoda because he's small and feisty, but also wise.
Are you involved with any nonprofits, charities or social causes?
I'm involved with both Protect Our Winters and Animal Rescue of the Rockies. I have always grown up with a love for animals and the outdoors, so for me to be able to use my platform as a professional athlete to create positive change on issues that mean so much to me is something I'm grateful to be able to do.
