Christine Feleki hails from the Canadian Rockies, where she learned how to snowboard at the age of 12. Once she discovered snowboarding, she was done with her skis! Spending every weekend and any other days she could get out of school, searching for pow, she knew she would never settle for a desk job. Once through high school, a bit of travel and some extra schooling, Christine found herself snow- bumming in Whistler, with more snow falling from the sky than she had ever seen.
Eventually the snow-bum life transitioned into a full time job as she followed her dream to pursue a career in the mountains, on a splitboard. Through sheer stubbornness, Christine is the first female to pass an Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (ACMG) exam on a splitboard, which is a truly amazing accomplishment.
She stepped into her first pair of Phantom bindings in 2015, and all doubts about hard boots disappeared. That first pair has seen her through many passes and peaks throughout Alberta and British Columbia, and are a key tool in her gear kit to putting in bigger days in the mountains, day after day.
Now residing in Squamish BC, Christine has spent her life in the mountains. She can be found guiding from the Coast Mountains to the Rockies for Altus Mountain Guides , Extremely Canadian , CaPow Guiding and Crescent Spur Heli Skiing . Additionally, she works with SheJumps and Mountain Mentors, putting on educational events for youth and women. Quite the busy schedule if you ask us, but Christine makes it work and still finds plenty of time to get out there and shred recreationally!
Christine is supported by Pallas Snowboards . Pallas is based in Salt Lake City, Utah , and they are an entirely female run company. They produce some really sweet boards by women, for women, and we here at Phantom love what they are about.
