Karly Shorr was on fire in 2016, earning podium finishes at the Burton US Open, the Olympic test event in Pyeongchang, South Korea and the U.S. Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain. A member of the 2014 U.S. Olympic slopestyle team, Shorr rode to a commendable sixth-place finish in Sochi. 

Shorr came from humble beginnings at Northern Michigan’s Boyne Mountain, but she made a name for herself with a win at the 2010 Mount Snow U.S. Revolution Tour stop. She won another Rev Tour stop in 2011 and then a took a couple more victories the next year to seal the 2012 overall Revolution Tour title.

Solid results and a slew of top-ten finishes proved that Shorr was ready for the big leagues in 2013, and then a pair of second-place finishes at the Mammoth Sprint U.S. Grand Prix clinched her a spot on the team headed to Sochi. At the Rosa Khutor Olympic venue, Shorr soared into sixth at the historic slopestyle snowboarding debut.

A slayer on the rails, Shorr continues to use her technical prowress to climb up the ranks of women's slopestyle snowboarding. Shorr earned her first World Cup podium in 2015, taking second place in Park CIty, UT.

FIRST TRACKS
Shorr began snowboarding because she wanted to hang with her two older brothers on the mountain. Her transition from gymnastics to snowboarding may be responsible for her air awareness and determination on a snowboard.

OFF THE SNOW
When she’s not riding or training, Shorr enjoys traveling and heading into the outdoors, especially in Oregon. She also enjoys hiking and swimming in the summertime as well as biking, skateboarding, reading, writing, taking photos, playing the ukulele and hunting.
