PENCIL IN THE DATE FOR THE RIP CURL SISTA SESSIONS 2011

Mayrhofen, Austria, 22nd October 2010: “”It was such a fun event, and it was so great to have the girls riding together and pushing each other forward.” -Urška Pribošič (SLO) winner of Sista Sessions 2010.

After an amazing event last year Sista Sessions returns in 2011, proudly now named the Rip Curl Sista Sessions. Hosted in the beautiful resort of Mayrhofen, Austria on the 19th-23rd of January 2011, the event gears up to put on a true feminine showdown at the Vans Penken Park. The Rip Curl Sista Sessions is an all girls snowboarding event featuring a 3Star Swatch TTR Slopestyle competition. However, it is much more than a snowboarding competition, during the 4 days there are numerous “Sessions” such as lessons, workshops, jam sessions, photoshoots and of course a party.

Keeping true to the roots of the event the Rip Curl Sista Sessions mission is to create a fun and lighthearted setting, getting everyone involved no matter what their level. We would like to invite all female snowboarders to come and have the opportunity to learn more, progress, ride with other girls, and compete in a chilled out environment.

Hence, we developed the “Sista Package” perfect for beginner-intermediate freestylers.

Any chicks coming from Innsbruck can pop into the Sweetdream snowboard shop and for a small fee can reserve a place on the Rock’n’Roll bus joining us for the lessons on Saturday.
