Meet the Women of Shift

Gretchen Bleiler

Gretchen started hitting the slopes at age 11 and has been riding ever since. A pioneer in the sport, she is breathtaking to watch as she dominates the half-pipe. A four-time X Games gold medalist and two-time U.S. Olympian, Gretchen has parlayed her trendsetting style into an Oakley apparel line that she designs. She also helped create the Snow Angels Invitational-the first ever all-girls half-pipe competition. An active promoter of women in sports, Gretchen uses her passion for the snow to inspire women everywhere to break out of their comfort zone, on and off the mountain.
