This is Veroniqi, or Niqi as some call her! She's a real railkiller from the bloomy Netherlands who found her heart in the mountains on her snowboard. Many months of the year you find her here in Salt Lake:

Get ready for a day of riding!

1. Check the weather forecast and pick your outfit.
It’s snowing!! And it is going to be cold.
I’m gonna go with the Icecold Boyfriends Fit top and Icecold Nebula pants.
Protest Atlin Jacket and black Lole pants.
Pick out some socks and maybe a sweater depending on the temperature.

2. Make breakfast and drink coffee
I choose to fuel my body with plants and eat a fully vegan diet.
I’ll usually start my day off with some oatmeal with almond/coconut milk, add in some chia & hemp seeds and some fruit.
Or some whole grain bread with almond butter and blueberries!

3. Warm up and do yoga
I’m not a yoga expert but I love just looking up yoga sequences on youtube and warm up for snowboarding! 

I’ve been doing this one every morning for a few days now and it makes me feel perfectly warmed up when I get to the mountain
