If you’re anything like us, riding fresh powder in the middle of summer already sounds like a dream come true – add two of the most amazing backcountry riders and female pioneers like PS webisodes legend Hana Beaman and fellow ripper Robin Van Gyn to the equation, and you can see us freaking out for real! But we’ll try to curb our enthusiasm long enough to write down all the details for you, and then continue jumping around and running in circles…
SASS Global Travel (SGT) is proud to announce the return of the Signature Women’s Sessions, which offer a bridge for women riders who want to make the leap into the backcountry by improving their snowboarding skills in deep powder conditions and by expanding their knowledge about avalanche awareness and safety. The vast terrain of these Patagonian mountains offers the perfect setting for adventure, fun and camaraderie by pushing individual limits through big mountain backcountry riding in a supportive team environment.
Year after year, we at SGT find ourselves at the forefront of progression in the women’s big mountain freeride movement and this year we promise to continue along and expand upon the tracks we have already set. “You’ve heard me say it a hundred times, but I just can’t seem to say it enough: SGT Argentina is the highlight of my summer. Family, friends, epic powder and mind-blowing terrain in one of the most interesting cultural settings you can imagine. I’ve been fortunate enough to ride all over the world and I can honestly say there is nothing else like it… anywhere,” said pro snowboarder Robin van Gyn. “Get down here.”
The SGT Argentina Women’s Session runs at the perfect time to experience biggest powder dumps of the Southern Hemisphere season, known as the Santa Rosa. “After the response to this program last season, we couldn’t be more excited right now for 2013,” said SGT Managing Director Travis Moore. “We’re definitely expecting another sell-out season.”
Prices start at $2495 for 8 days camp,including lodging steps from the gondola, daily breakfast, tea and dinner, backcountry education, 24/7 logistics support, local airport transfers, and discounted airfare through LAN Airlines.
