The first edition of the QParks Girls Shred Sessions went down in the Snowpark Alta Badia in the heart of the Dolomites on the first February weekend and could not possibly have been a greater success! So make sure to pencil the next dates into your diary asap to make sure you don't miss out on this amazing girls shred-perience!
You don't only get to ride with like-minded girls until your legs won't carry you anymore and find new friends to go out with in future, but also ride on obstacles perfectly shaped for the female body! And to top it all off, the whole session is accompanied by photographers and filmers whose lenses focus on the ladies only.
“The park is perfectly adjusted to the ground features and offers kickers with 3-14m tables and many boxes, rails and jib elements designed for all riding levels" says Park designer Simon Abel, with the warm up runs being carried out on the medium kicker line with 3-7m tables, followed by some advanced action on the 10-14m jumps and a bit of jibbing in the end section. “When girls shred together, a particular dynamics develop, you push yourself much more and
motivate each other to learn new tricks", said local freeski pro Arianna Tricomi. And snowboard coach Nadine Härtinger adds: “The chance to get a good shot or a cool scene on video motivates you much more to give your very best. For sure, it is also fun to shred with guys, but freestyle among girls is just something different. You dare much more and try out new staff. I think these Girls Shootings are an awesome idea and I can only recommend every girl to take part in one of the next event!"
