Growing up in Calgary, Brooke started out in snowboard cross and moved to slopestyle before settling on the superpipe at Canada Olympic Park. Inspired by the free-spirited style of Danny Davis and the competitive consistency of Kelly Clark, Brooke’s breakthrough came as a 13-year-old at the legendary event both of her role models had dominated for years: the Burton US Open.
Following her win at the 2019 Burton Junior Jam that solidified her status among the best young pipe riders in the world, she was invited to both the Dew Tour in Copper and the X Games in Aspen. For Brooke, snowboarding is a way to promote kindness and positivity amongst teenage girls and encourage them to stay actively involved in sport.
Now at just 16 years old, she is developing the tricks and perfecting the run required to land on the Olympic podium at the next Winter Games.
