My name is Danyale Patterson. I started riding in Alaska with my dad. He taught my how to board in the backcountry. Once I finally rode a groomed mountain and park, I never went back to back country! Groomers and park were just too easy. So then I moved to Tahoe and now spend my days riding boreal mountain. I am also the Creator and owner of too hard, an all women's snowboard media outlet. So basically I spend all my time snowboarding or filming/editing women's snowboarding.
