If you haven't heard of these snowboarding sistas you will very soon! Kidzworld gives you five names you need to remember!

Lindsey Jacobellis

For a lot of people, Lindsey Jacobellis is best known for falling near the finish line at the 2006 Olympics. But the 22-year-old is proving she is anything but a choke job. In 2007, she won the FIS World Cup and won the snowboarding cross competition at the 2008 X-Games. Her win marks her fourth gold medal at the X-Games. No question, at Lindsey's young age, she will be dominating the comp for years to come!

The Karlinski Sisters

If you find yourself seeing double on the slopes you probably are! Teenage sisters, Jordie and Teddy Karlinski, are possibly the future of women's snowboarding. The Aspen, Colorado siblings have already started to make noise! Jordie, who is a college freshman, won a gold and silver medal at the USANA Nationals. She also took fourth place in the snowboarding cross event in last year's X-Games. Teddy, who is a year older, was a slopestyle finalist at the 2007 New Zealand Burton Open.

Jamie Anderson

At just 17 years old, Jammin' Jamie Anderson is one of the sports' fastest rising stars. After winning the slopestyle event at the '07 X Games, this high school senior became the youngest snowboarding gold medalist at the event. Like the Karlinski sisters, she also has a younger star snowboarding sister, Joanie. They are the first sisters to win a Winter X Games event. Count on hearing more and more about Jamie and Joanie in the near future!

Claudia Fliri

Although Australian snowboarder, Claudia Fliri, has been boardin' professionally for 10 years, she has started to get some shine this past year. The 23-year-old Aussie, has won the big air event at the 2007 Australian Open and placed second in slopestyle at the '07 New Zealand Open. She can knock down 720s with ease and is currently working on pulling off a 900 very soon in competitions!

Zoe Gillings

Zoe Gillings is by far the best snowboarder in the UK. At just 22, this British babe not only has a rad name but is also a snowboarder on the verge of breaking out. She won the World Cup when she was a rookie in 2004 and competed in the 2006 Olympics. She is starting to come into her own and her reckless riding style is a big hit with fans. Watch out for her to make headlines in upcoming X Games and Olympics!
