“Oh my god, it doesn’t feel real!” Battersby said. “It’s an honor to be the first woman to win slopestyle on the Dew Tour, and I think it sends a message to all the girls out there that our sport is coming up fast. To anybody out there who wants to be a part of this I just want to say, ‘Never give up on your dreams.’ I came out from Chicago and now I’m living in Utah to ski full time. I’m competing, I’m traveling, I’m living the dream. Never give up on what you want and just keep going for it no matter what. If you know what you want, get out there and get after it.”

“I’ve been here every year to support the guys and all my friends in snowboarding, and it’s nice to finally be included,” Herman says. “No more sitting on the sidelines! Breck is the absolute best place to have made this start, because they’ve always been supporting the girls.”
“There’s really good vibes here and they had a really great course, and I think it gave us a great chance to show how far the girls have come,” Warll says. “I’m looking forward to seeing what it becomes.”
