All you shred Sistas’ out there get waxing your boards and get ready for the Skullcandy Sista Sessions Slopestyle competition, which is taking place at the VANS Penken Park in Mayrhofen, Austria on Saturday the 13th February 2010. This all female event is set to be action packed with photo shoots, beginner lessons and parties, but the main focus is on the 3Star Swatch TTR Slopestyle Competition where the top riders will battle it out for a piece of the $2500 USD prize purse.
The event is to be held in the world-renowned VANS Penken Park in Mayrhofen, a park that always features creative and impeccably shaped obstacles. The event runs on the “public line” with two sets of rails and boxes, an 11m kicker, then a 14m kicker. The winners will walk away with a fat cheque and prizes from our sponsors Skullcandy, Billabong, Vans and Les Ettes. And on top of that one wild card will be handed out to the 3Star Oakley Girlsessions in Ruka, Finland.
The girls who make it through to the final will have to battle it out for the title against some big named riders such Basa Stevulova (SVK), Tania Detomas (ITA), Conny Bleicher (GER), Julia Baumgartner (AUT) and Enni Rukajärvi (FIN), who earlier this winter won the 4Star TTR Pleasure Jam.
Staying true to the roots of the event we have some special action planned for all those girls who are interested in trying out some freestyle riding. The ‘Sweet Dream–Newbie Zone’ will feature beginner freestyle lessons taught by Mayrhofen’s elite SMT Snowboard School. After the lessons, the beginners will have their own little competition/session on the obstacles that they have been practicing on before with tons of prizes to win from the Sweat Dream girls snowboard shop.
Win yourself some Skullcandy headphones and a Wild Card to the Skullcandy Sista Sessions. All details are available on the website, so get filming!
