You've got to work hard to make a name for yourself and Helen is a perfect example of that. Years of bumps and bruises are producing a backcountry savy shred and her list of sponsors shows that the right people are taking notice. It'll be a colder than normal season if you expect her to put out a rail part though.
Name: Helen Schettini
Birthdate: October 9, 1984
Hometown: Kamloops, BC
Current residence: Whistler, BC
Sponsors: Billabong, YES., Vivo Headwear, Electric, Circa, Dakine, The Circle, NOW Bindings
Who's are the unsung hero's in your life?
My brother, he taught me how to snowboard; he is one of the best riders out there yet he changed gears a while ago and now works his ass off up on the oil rigs.
What's the perfect day involve?
Powder day on Whistler. Head up the chair first thing, ride Garbanzo lift line laps until the peak cracks, then spend the rest of the day up there. Afterwards, head down to the Brass and have some caesers with friends.. go home early, get a good night sleep and do it again.
Where in Canada would you live if Snowboarding wasn't the program ( not your hometown ):
BC for sure but I'm not sure where. I love areas of Vancouver but I'm not a city person, maybe North Van or Squamish. Even if snowboarding wasn't on the agenda, the sea to sky is the best place for most outdoor activities, I'm sure I'd stay in this area for life.
When do you plan on putting out a full rail part?
When hell freezes over.
Why do you do what you do?
It makes me happy
