"Nicole is an outgoing young adult with an 'I'll try anything the first time' attitude," said Craig Armstrong, her prosthetic advisor. "She won't let much of anything stop her from achieving her goals."
At this year's national competition, Roundy will be competing in the adaptive boardercross, slopestyle and superpipe competitions.
Both boardercross and slopestyle events require boarders to navigate jumps, other obstacles, and sometimes other boarders. Superpipe competitions focus on tricks done in a pipe with 17-ft. high walls.
An avid rock climber, basketball and volleyball player, Roundy was introduced to snowboarding in 2005. After getting a new, more flexible prosthetic knee so that she could do jumps, she refined her technique at the Shriners Hospitals 2006 Camp Un-Limb-ited, Ski and Snowboard Camp at Snowbird Resort.
