Hannah's Gold, Sweet Cheeks
In a family with three snowboarding brothers, the hand-me-down boarding habit was inevitable. Hannah started riding at age eight and took her first lesson at Okemo, VT, her home mountain.

The bright-eyed rider lives in Tahoe, but spends a lot of time surfing in Costa Rica. Teter’s philanthropic initiatives are unparalleled in the action sports world. Her charity Hannah’s Gold has raised nearly $200,000 for an impoverished village in Kenya. Her line of underwear, Sweet Cheeks – Panties with a Purpose, raises funds for the charity partner Children International, which helps aid children living in extreme poverty.
Hannah's Gold raises money through the sales of Vermont maple syrup to support the village of Kirindon, Kenya through building schools, digging fresh water wells, and providing water filtration. Sweet Cheeks donates 40% of the sales proceeds from an exclusive line of underwear to partner organization Children International to help feed children living in extreme poverty around the world.
