Splitboarder Halina Boyd is featured on TGR.com this week about her recent mission to climb and snowboard13,809-foot Gannett Peak, the highest mountain in Wyoming. The expedition will be showcased in an upcoming film.

“The challenge of the adventure is really when we’re getting what we don’t really realize we’re seeking,” Boyd told TGR. “Anytime we go into the woods there are usually physical and mental challenges, which is the reward, ultimately.”
