This years Snowdown, presented by Nikita Clothing, Snowboarder Magazine, Ride Snowboards, 686, Dragon, and Bear Mountain- will play host to 30 individually invited amateur riders and 30 open spots. Riders will duke it out for 3 trips to The Icelandic Park Project and one year long contract!

The Nikita Chickita Snowdown is an annual shredscapade that invites the best female ams to come throw down and vie for their shot at 3 trips to Iceland and flow contracts from the event’s sponsors. The Snowdown is judged by some of the best and most influential girls in the game, including Ride Snowboard’s Priscilla LeVac and Nikita’s Laura Hadar.

“Im super stoked to watch these girls huck themselves for fame and glory, says Hadar. “Its going to be lots of fun!

At The Snowdown riders are judged not only on their technical ability, but also on consistency and style. Last years winner Iris Lazzereschi spent a week at Iceland’s only snowboard camp, IPP, and called the contest the best snowboard event she had attended.

“I’ve never been to a contest that was as kick back, fun and competitive all at the same time. It felt more like a great day on the hill then a contest. I had so much fun! It really gave everyone the chance to see what other girls are doing and the prizes are epic! Iceland was amazing!

Amateur riders invited to The Snowdown will have a reserved spot in the contest and were chosen for the progressive skills they apply on the hill. To compile this list, Nikita asked the best who’s on the up and up. With lots of thoughtfulness and consideration these riders were hand picked by some of the most progressive and influential riders in snowboarding. With good friends and good shredding, good times are guaranteed! See you February 26th, at The Snowdown!
