Robin Van Gyn
Whistler, British Columbia
A true snowboard missionary, Robin Van Gyn is a devoted backcountry trailblazer on North and South America's steepest peaks. Hilarious and charismatic, Robin also spends her time coaching kids in the fine art of shred. She's a regular in the backcountry and typically can be found dropping cliffs, pillow lines, and spinning off kickers - exploits often documented in magazines and films.
Robin has dedicated the last few years to a full-on filming campaign, earning the only full part of backcountry riding in Peepshow Film's 2011 release "Winter Wars". She followed that up with an epic season of filming for the P.S. webisode series with fellow backcountry extraordinaire, Hana Beaman.
