Professional snowboarder Jamie Anderson is considered the best slopestyle female snowboarder in the world. And now that slopestyle has been added to the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, Anderson has qualified for the US Olympic Snowboard Team. We caught up with Anderson for this episode of Dose at Mammoth Mountain. She breaks down how she qualified for the Olympics, describes some tips she got from fellow Olympians Hannah Teter and Louie Vito, and what she expects in Sochi. She also reveals that the best souvenir she can bring home from Sochi will be a gold medal.
Professional snowboarder Hannah Teter was just named the first Special Olympics action sports Global Ambassador. The announcement was made in Aspen, Colorado during the X Games and to mark the occasion Teter organized a unified snowboarding event pairing professional snowboarders with Special Olympics athletes on a dual giant slalom course. Teter recruited fellow snowboarders Jamie Anderson, Scotty James, and more to pair up with Special Olympics athletes from across the country. The result was pretty amazing.

Snowboarder Jamie Anderson has won more contests than any other slopestyle rider in history. (Take that, Bob Coastas.) Now she is going to be part of the U.S. Olympic team when slopestyle snowboarding makes its debut in Sochi. So it's no surprise that her new web series is called "Living The Dream" because that is exactly what Anderson is doing. But she isn't just doing it by fulfilling her Olympic goals, she's also doing it by going to Burning Man and, based on what we see at the :39 mark, skinny-dipping. So yeah, we're pretty excited for the series to start.

ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue has become an annual event that rivals Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue. Now in it's sixth year of publication, the Body Issue gets some of the biggest names in sports to pose nude. Action sports stars have always been part of the mix. In past years, big-wave surfer Maya Gabeira, snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler, and surfer Kelly Slater have all bared it all for the magazine.
The latest edition of ESPN's Body Issue is no different. Olympic snowboarding gold medalist Jamie Anderson, ASP World Tour surfer Coco Ho, Paralympic snowboarder Amy Purdy, BMX rider Nigel Sylvester, and Nitro Circus couple Travis Pastrana and Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins all posed naked. The results are pretty spectacular.
