Betty developed the cross sport of Hoop Boarding in 2000. (hula hooping while snowboarding) She appears almost every year on the White Out Segment, during the Aspen Winter XGames. The producer of America's Got Talent contacted her to simulate Hoop Boarding on the show in 2014. She made it to the Celebrity Judges Round.

THE PHYSICS OF HOOP BOARDING
The C-Force & G-Force must be equal. If the hoop is too light, it will fall and create too much torque in the back and pull one off their edges. The fast downhill speed means that Betty must use a hoop that is about 3.5 pounds. Heavy enough to withstand wind and downhill speed.
