Kelly Sildaru

At just 13 years old, Kelly Sildaru is one of the most exciting, rising talents in the freeskiing community. Sliding her first box at age 5, throwing her first 720 at age 7 and stomping all 900s at age 11 (each variation of switch/forward stance and right/left spin).

Kelly’s clips on her YouTube channel have solidified her prodigy status, amassing over two million views and thousands of dedicated followers.

In 2015 she gracefully stamped her authority, winning the Dew Tour Freeski Slopestyle final, in Breckenridge Colorado, with the biggest run of the contest, an impressive 90.80. We’re sure it won’t be the last time we see Kelly atop the winner's podium.

They came, they saw and they conquered. From fresh powder to our very own pink ladies, last week we gathered an alpine girl gang at Threbo resort, all in the name of learning some new skills and a chance to meet local legend Torah Bright and bright new star, Kelly Sildaru.

ROXY Girls Ride Day 2017

If you managed to tune in to our Insta story, chances are you noticed that our Girls Ride Day just happened to coincide with the 4th blizzard to hit the Australian alps this season, aptly earning the title ‘the Blizzard of Oz’.

As the weather set in and the flakes began to multiply, the event itself was in doubt... “Should we call it off? Will we be able to run it in these conditions?”, to which Torah emphatically answered;

“Of Course we can!!” shouted Torah, “this is Australian POWDER, let’s SHRED!”

While Olympic champion, Torah Bright, calls Thredbo Resort her home in the snow, we were lucky enough to have X Games Champ, Kelly Sildaru join us (fresh from her World Cup Freeski Slopestyle win in New Zealand!) This was Kelly’s first time to Australia, and together with her little brother, Henry, they met the locals, showed them a few tricks and learnt a little bit about pow in the land down under.

Scroll down for a few of our favorite moments from the day -

Riding pow with your friends. Can you think if a better way to spend a Monday? @roxy #roxygirlsrideday

Always the competitor, Sildaru had little to say about her runs, but noted that they, “could have been better.”

We have no maps. We're lead by heart, and our aim is true: Progression. Gold medals. Experiences. It's different for each of us. Driven by day and crazed by night, pre-dawn to après, our pattern is clear: FIND, SHRED, REPEAT. #ROXYsnow

Less than 24 hours after joining the ROXY team, Kelly Sildaru wins gold at the X Games in Aspen!

The 13-year-old freeskier made history by becoming the youngest female competitor ever to win gold at the Winter X Games.

Kelly scored 93 points in the ski slopestyle final. Moving to the top of the podium ahead of the Norwegian girls Tiril Sjastad Christiansen (91,66 pts) and Johanne Killi (85,66 pts) who took silver and bronze.

This is already the second win of her young career following her freeski slopestyle victory at Dew Tour in December.

At just 13 years of age, Kelly Sildaru is one of the most exciting rising talents in the freeskiing community. We’re sure it won’t be the last time we see Kelly atop the winner's podium.
