They are back: Girls Shred Sessions at quattro Snow Park Obergurgl

January 29, 2017 – quattro Snow Park Obergurgl: A bevy of girls on freeskis and snowboards will own the park. Professional riders cheer for them and together the girls work on their tricks. There are also snacks and of course awesome goodies to end the session! That is all part of the first Girls Shred Session of the season. Here’s how you can be part of this shred-crazed gang.

Girls own the park!

This claim has been QParks’ mission for years now, especially at quattro Snow Park Obergurgl: In this park you’ll exclusively find shaperesses in park designer Cat Nicol’s crew. With only girls shaping the park it’s clear that a Girls Shred Session is a must!

As a special highlight, the participating girls can take part in a little “How-to-shape-workshop” and will get the chance to help the park crew with reshaping the obstacles after lunch. Of course there will be enough time for coaching and photo shootings in enjoyable “shredmosphere” before and after reshaping the “shaped-by-girls-only-park”.

Girls Shred…what?

You haven’t heard of the Girls Shred Sessions yet? Well, then it’s high time, because each session is going to prove to be an unforgettable day at the park. You’ll be shredding alongside plenty of other highly motivated girls, while experienced snowboard and freeski coaches will offer their helpful advice and support you morally.

“Each year more girls are coming for some proper shred sessions and I think it’s just amazing to watch them progress,” coach and snowboard pro Ana Rumiha says. It’s the perfect chance for you to practice various new tricks in a totally relaxed atmosphere and also to hang out with some new shred friends. As freeskier Patrizia Holzmann puts it,

What’s better than shredding with other girls and winning some sweet shots at the same time?”
