It’s back to basics for competitors entered in the Freestyle for Funds event this Sunday 23 September at Snow Park NZ as they ski or board in bikinis to raise funds for the Breast Cancer Foundation.
A day for the girls, the Snow Girls Jam includes a Slopestyle competition on novice and intermediate features as well as the Bikini downhill on the ski racers track for which a bikini must be worn on some part of their body, and can be over clothing.
Five dollars for each lift pass purchased (discounted at $20) for the event will go to the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation, the event is an opportunity for the girls to shine in the terrain park and raise awareness for the charity. Males are welcome to enter providing a bra or bikini is worn.
