This technically savvy rail skier got her start as an inline skater back in Chicago. A proud member of the US Freeskiing team, Battersby just missed the Slopestyle podium at X Games Aspen 2010 and 2011 and finished 5th in 2012. A solid year in 2011 saw Ashley win the Breckenridge stop of the Dew Tour and finish 3rd overall in the AFP slopestyle rankings. Battersby's ski skills also got her props in the Dec. 2011 issue of Freeskier mag, where she has an eight-page spread. With a rail heavy Slopestyle course suited to her style in 2013, look for Battersby to finally make the X Games Aspen podium this time around.
- Ashley tore her right ACL at Dec. 2013, Dew Tour in Breckenridge, CO and missed the rest of the 2013/2014 season. She has had four ACL surgeries during her career and has competed at X Games Aspen four times and just missed the podium three times in 2013, 2011 and 2010. She was 5th in 2012.
