Torah Bright exists in a category all of her own. A snow lover since birth, Torah was skiing at age 2 and by 11, she had broken into the snowboarding scene. Torah joined the Roxy team in 1999 and has gone on to dominate competitions around the world, including the TTR World Tour, Global Open Series, FIS World Cups, Winter X Games, and of course, podium finishes at two Winter Olympics, taking home the gold in 2010 and silver medal in 2014. She splits her time between her home in Salt Lake City, her training ground of New Zealand, and her homeland of Australia.
In 2011, Torah focused on backcountry riding and added big powder jumps, steep lines, and snowmobile rallying to her already formidable arsenal. And in 2013, she dropped back into the contest scene with force - this time attacking half pipe, slope style and snowboard cross. After a successful start to her 2014 season with a Dew Tour win, Torah went on to become the first and only person in the world to qualify and compete in three snowboard events at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, taking home a silver medal in half pipe in the process.
