Get to know Small Fry Shredder Sophia Capua

With most sports, the common theme that you hear is “ Start ‘em young”. Sophia Capua embodies the very essence of this phrase. At just 6 years old, Sophia is snowboarding well beyond her years. She is one of the hardest working Microns with Flow. She puts out monthly edits that are creative and fun, snowboards any chance that she gets, and is already getting photos in certain publications (most recent in Summit Daily). But if you ask Sophia, snowboarding is anything but work. She is doing it for the simple fact that snowboarding is fun.

Snowboarding Is…

For a young aspiring snowboarder, snowboarding is everything. For Sophia Capua, snowboarding is FUN. The main reason that most of us start to do anything, is for the simple fact that it is fun. Sophia hasn’t lost sight of that belief, and from the looks of it, she probably never will. This pint sized shredder loves snowboarding and is constantly pushing her parents for more time on the mountain.

Local Spots & Favorite things about Snowboarding

Sophia hails from Colorado and frequently inhabits the local spots of Copper Mountain & Loveland Ski Resort. The young Micron snowboards at any chance that she gets. For this reason, “Dad’s Park” (a.k.a the Capua’s backyard) was created. Sophia is not scared one bit, she loves hitting rails and doing jumps that seem to be nearly 3X her size. Anytime that Sophia can have a snowboard under her feet is a good time.

The Next day we made the trek up to Lake Tahoe via Donner Summit & stopped by Mike Basich’s Area-241 to see the work in progress on his chairlift.  Mike owns 40 acres on the Pass and has already constructed his own house, tow-rope and now his personal chairlift.  “Each chair will be pieces of art” says Mike, for instance one chair will be a Monkey hanging off the cable and you will sit in it’s hand.  He also plans on having art work all over the runs, paintings hanging from trees, a 24 ft quarter pipe, 40 ft table top jump & all sorts of Natural Features like Log slides and stuff.
