avatar-girl-1.gifThere’s not a day without a post on an up-coming contest! But today it’s a special one because it’s for the ladies!

Sista Sessions will take place in the Méribel Moon Park on March 6th – 9th 2007. It is the penultimate stop on the Soul Gang Tour – an all-new European freestyle tour for female riders organized by the founder of Intergirlactik, Julie Vergez. – and the winners will be invited to Pinky Jam in Italy (SGT finals) as well as Intergirlactik, a 3 star TTR event.

With up to €3000 worth of prizes up for grabs, a friendly open format, and Meribel’s lively après ski scene, there will be something to gain for everyone involved.
The competition will cater for all levels of rider and aims to attract the largest number of participants possible. On day 1 professional instructors from Alliance (Tignes) and Cab9 (Meribel) Snowboard Schools will be giving tuition to all levels and encourage girls to enter for day-2’s Slopestyle Jam. By working in close conjunction with the Moon Park – one of France’s premier snowparks – the course will offer a wide variety of girls’ specific obstacles (kickers, rails, boxes, hips and wall-ride). The jam session format and the range of hits will provide the best environment for girls to fully show off their skills.

Sista Sessions holds a unique appeal in that on day 3 the top amateur riders from each discipline will be invited on a backcountry photo shoot, guided by instructors and invited pros. Professional photographers and filmers will be present to capture the skills of the best 6 participants from the previous day in the outstanding terrain of the Méribel valley. Films and photographs of the shoot will be given to the winning girls.

Attending pro riders include Rita Comi, Maude Richon, Aurélie Garcin, Posy Dixon, Sabrina Cuzas, Conny Bleicher, Sarah Martinais and Camille Imbert, who will be there to compete, to inspire and to guide the other competitors.
