Q Parks Girls Shred Sessions

QParks girls shred sessions are the hottest events across the Alps this season

Each season Q parks bring the heat with the Girls Shred Sessions, spread out across Europe they offer specialised and dedicated coaching sessions to any ladies who love to rip. All ages and abilities are welcome, all that is required is a passion for snowboarding and a can-do attitude. The sessions are a relaxed and informal way to dip your toes into the often intimidating world of riding park, and come with the promise of some top quality coaching and instruction from a badass bunch of ladies.

Over the season they’ve hosted 5 sessions across Italy and Austria, stopping in at some of the raddest resorts across the Alps. Fittingly, they kicked off the season in Obergurgl, the home of the Diamond Girls Shaper crew, the only all female shaper crew in Europe. We couldn’t think of a better place to start harnessing some girl power than the Diamond of the Alps. The event in Obergurgl was aided by Nikita, and the Nikita Ambassador team was out in full force to offer their tips and tricks to the gals in attendance.

Next stop, the ladies flocked to Super Park Planai for a banging day powered by Blue Tomato. Once again the girls were treated to some top notch coaching from the experts, and all walked away cheesin’ at the end of the day with their rad goodybags. Planai is known for it’s versatility and ‘something for everyone’ vibe, so was the perfect location to host the second progression session. It was even voted one of the top 7 snowparks in the world in 2018.

Next up was the session in the world famous Penken Park, Mayrhofen. The ‘Hof has long had a reputation for having a sick park, and an even sicker party vibe. The crew served up a sizzling BBQ in the legendary Grillhof, and spent the day going through the features with all the ladies in attendance. Mayrhofen has an abundance of rad ladies, and they showed up in full force to take over the park, and show the boys how it’s done.

The penultimate stop on the tour was a stop off in Alta Badia, and the crew jumped into the land of pizza and pasta with gusto. ‘La Dolce Vita’ was the name of the game, and the girls sure did live it. Similar to the other events, the girls spent time going over their technique with the coaches, and analysing where they might have areas for improvement. It’s a relaxed and positive environment for learning, and all the girls walked away from the day having benefited from the watchful eyes of the pros.

Last, and certainly not least, the Girls Shred sessions teamed up with Blue Tomato for their banger of a final event in Hochkönig. Over 60 girls turned up to kill it in the park, and after a quick warm up it was obvious that the girls hadn’t come to mess around, spins and slides and shreds were being thrown out left, right, and centre. The level of riding was super high, and with the help of the coaches, the girls were soon bagging shot after shot with the media team. After a BBQ to fuel up, the ladies were back at it and spent the afternoon stunting hard and taking names. They put together a sick edit of the day which you can see here!
