Went to the Planai & had some fun at the Blue Tomato Girls Day, where we got the chance to get coached and work on our park skills. I was stoked because I learned how to ride a tube, which I hadn’t mastered before… all pics can be found here: https://www.superparkplanai.at/gallery/blue-tomato-girls-day-planai-2020-allpicsen/
On the 16th of March 2019, the first Girls Park Attack will take place. Organized by the GCD Crew (GCD meaning “Girls Can Do”) in cooperation with Blue Tomato, the day will focus on girls and women who want to get better at riding the snowpark or who even want to try it out for the first time. The GCD Crew is a group of women who have found together through their love for snowboarding. They will help others to grow their bag of tricks and to better their skills at park riding. Besides the costs for the lift ticket, the whole session is for free, so don’t miss this chance to get to know others and to up the ante!

After the Catch Some Rails contest had to be postponed two weeks ago, the re-edition could take place on the 19th of march in the Neighborhood Snowpark at the Weinebene Resort in Styria. Blazing sunshine greeted all riders. In the morning, it was time for some practise runs in the park and after a short lunchbreak with treats from Almdudler, Afro Coffee, Red Bull and Hirter Bier, the contest took place in the afternoon.
The level was very high and many riders offered a huge bag of tricks, which made it rather difficult for the judges to make their decisions.
Results Ski Ladies:
1. Hanni Janesch
2. Sophie Brandl
3. Maria Hütter
Results Snowboard Ladies:
