The Kaitlyn Farrington SUPER SESSIONS will be held during Session 2 & 3 at SASS Argentina. Participants of all ages are invited to the first week (August 6th – 13th) to ride with Kaitlyn and push into the backcountry. The second week (August 13th – 20th) is adults only and Kaitlyn will be on hand to lead the way both on and off the hill as only she knows how.
Kaitlyn has been down to SASS Argentina for the past two seasons, utilizing the all-star guide staff to help transition her snowboarding into the backcountry and bigger mountains. "I was known as a halfpipe rider. Breaking out of that niche into the backcountry is definitely a transition. It was like I started all over," says Farrington. These SUPER SESSIONS will be an opportunity for her to share the lessons she learned. Designed as a platform to take participants' skills to the next level, Kaitlyn's SUPER SESSIONS include integrated backcountry education, guided shredding and guest coaching from one of the raddest ladies on the mountain.
