The first Girls Who Ride Session by NIKITA of the year took place at Snowpark Obergurgl: There’s hardly a better place for it since Obergurgl is the only snowpark built and maintained by an all-girls shape crew (called the Diamond Girls Crew)
There are several playgrounds in Obergurgl. That’s why a group can decide, depending on their mood or riding-level, whether to hit the snowpark right away or start off slowly in the Familypark.
The Familypark created a perfect foundation for a warm-up: Butter boxes and beginner kickers offered enough possibilities to learn basics or work on the favorite tricks. Thanks to the coaches and helping one another out, the shredqueens showed progress pretty fast. “Learning new tricks, pushing each other and shredding through the day was so much fun with all those girls here”, told participant Lena. “My special thanks goes to the coaches, who did a great job and kept motivating us over and over again despite a couple of hard landings.”
For Lunch, the girls were invited from the resort at the Hohe Mut Alm. After a short break and numerous hikes, the crowd felt ready for the snowpark– the session ended with some exciting jumps on the kicker line.
Lea Baumschlager and Lisa Filzmoser coached the snowboard-girls while all twintips-ladies were coached by Stefanie Mössler who had nothing but praise for her freeski-students: “I’m so happy about the girls’ motivation and progression!”
The group was very diverse – the youngest shredqueen was 7 years old Sophie. She skillfully slid across boxes. “She couldn’t contain her excitement and absolutely wants to come again next season”, her parents said. “Every single girl contributed to why Sophie felt so good about the day.”
