Raised in Milford, Michigan, Karly Shorr grew up riding Boyne Mountain. Originally a competitive gymnast, she put that aside and followed—in good little sister fashion—her two older brothers into snowboarding. Good thing she did, because Shorr is a jump-hitting natural.
With a wildly successful 2012 season, where she dominated the Revolution Tour and took home three wins, Shorr was crowned the overall tour champion. Shorr’s now pushing hard to prove herself amongst the sport’s elite.
Shorr put in a strong effort in the Olympic qualifiers for the 2014 Sochi Games, earning a pair of 2nd-place finishes in one weekend at the Mammoth Mountain stop of the U.S. Grand Prix. Those finishes earned her a spot on the first-ever U.S. Olympic women's slopestyle team via a discretionary pick.
- 2014 U.S. Grand Prix, Mammoth Mountain #1 (Slopestyle) - 2nd
- 2014 U.S. Grand Prix, Mammoth Mountain #3 (Slopestyle) - 2nd
- 2014 U.S. Grand Prix, Mammoth Mountain #2 (Slopestyle) - 7th
Things to Know:
- When she’s not competing, you can find Shorr enjoying the great outdoors around the Lake Tahoe area and beyond.
