Meet Chas Guldemond – Snowboard (Slopestyle)
Chas, a Laconia, NH native, earned his place as one of the biggest names in snowboarding when he transformed slopestyle snowboarding and became the first rider to land a 1440 in a slopestyle competition. He won gold at the 2013 U.S. Grand Prix in Copper last January and was recently named to the 2014 US Snowboarding Slopestyle Pro Team.

"Bear Naked Fit and Protein are my go to snacks as I 'One Up' my winter playground and get amped for Sochi," said Guldemond.

Meet Hannah Kearney – Freestyle (Moguls)
Since first putting on skis at the age of two in her hometown of Norwich, VT, Hannah has competed in two Olympic Winter Games. At the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, she etched her name in history by winning an Olympic gold medal, and recently won the first World Cup event of the 2014 season in Ruka, Finland.
