About The Author:
I am Tiffany Mitchell also known as Tiffany Topcab & this blog is about snowboarding journey’s. I grew up in California until I was 14, where there is not to much snow, unless you go into the mountains. Growing up in California was awesome, tons of sun and beaches. The first time I actually touched snow was when I was 13, and I fell in love with it. I tried skiing twice. Coming from a single mom who was raising me and my little brother, my mom was unable to afford this great sport. I moved to Boston in my 20′s and with my success of starting a Boston Taxi Co. called TOP CAB & CITY CAB (www.topcab.us) I have been blessed to do many amazing things. Top Cab & City Cab is one of Boston’s largest fleet of taxi’s, with over 500 taxi’s. With the luxury of being Boss Lady, I was finally financially able to ski. I bought my first ski season pass to Wachusetts Mountain in Princeton Massachusetts and my first pair of skis in 2010. I loved to ski and enjoyed the thrill of learning how to ski. I am loving the New England ski experience…
In March of 2011 I was introduced to the snowboard…Luckily, I wasn’t to trained in skiing so it was easy for me to switch. When I bought my skis, they came with a free trip to Bretton Woods Mountain in NH(brettonwoods.com). I decided to jump on a snowboard and try to see if it was something I could do. Once on the board, I fell in love with riding and how hard it was to do. Snowboarding is the hardest thing for me to try and master. Snowboarding is intense- you literally touch every part of the mountain. I dream of being great. I ended up buying my own board which was a K2 Board that was a 159″ and I am only 5’2.. The board was way too long, which I did not know until the following season.
The next season I bought my second board GNU B Street with Nick Russian Artwork handmade in USA size 140 and the rest is history. Once I tried the GNU (gnu.com)board, I started riding much better. Every GNU snowboard is hand built in the U.S.A. Gnu boards are built with tough and fast UHMW external sidewalls and impact resistant and grain internal sidewalls. Ultra-lihjt weight rugged “polymer bumper” sandwich tip and tails are standard on all GNU’s. They have Magne-Traction which “turns ice into powder” and they float.
Snowboarding has taken hold of my life on a daily basis. I eat, breathe, sleep and dream snowboarding. I am so lucky that I have a great riding partner who has helped me to be a good rider. This site will show my riding adventures and the life of a rider and how I am always chasing the snow. Now it will be officially two years on my board as of March 21,2013. I have been to Sugarloaf, Bretton Woods, Jay Peak Vt, Jackson Hole WY, Wild Cat, Attitash, Black Mountain, Loon Mountain, Wachusetts Mountain, Killington, Waterville Valley, Sunday River . Many mountains in only two years and counting.
Three years strong and I have conquered many fears, heights, and vertical’s, and victory on a box. In the past three years I have added Crotched Mountain, Breckenridge, and Arapahoe Basin in Colorado to the mountains, I have explored. I have been frozen with fear, I have mastered jumping in to a bowl and I have lot’s of fun. I have now designed my own logo for this site and now have designed my own fashion line, and I am working on making it the best it could be. I have a group of riding girly girls who now ride with me. My fashion of snowboarding has grown so big, that I need two closets to hold it all. My love of fashion keeps me cute and fabulous.
