Just days before veteran snowboarder Kelly Clark hit the slopes of Winter X Games 2013, she sat down with espnW to reflect on how far she has come, and to talk about her hopes for this year’s competition.

In a career that has spanned more than 20 years, Clark has won two Olympic and seven X Games medals. She shared her insights in a blog post and video (see above) for espnW.

Clark has paved the way for female action sports athletes, and that’s one of the reasons espnW wanted to work with her.

“What is intriguing about Clark is her longevity, and she is still pushing the envelope — see last year’s Winter X — and still teaching athletes on and off the snow,” said Joy Russo, Deputy Editor, espnW.

Clark’s expected to be in the Women’s Snowboard SuperPipe Finals Saturday, airing 9 – 11 p.m. ET on ESPN, ESPN 3D and WatchESPN.

Throughout the X Games, espnW will have coverage from Aspen, including athlete features, The Word, videos, results, and the Cold List series (#ColdList).
