This winter, Chicks with Stix will continue running their FREE weekend-long sessions at resorts around Australia. The sessions will consist of a three hour-long workshop on both the Saturday and Sunday (unless specified otherwise). Our general age bracket is 12-25 years old but we have chicks of all ages joining in! Chicks under 10 years old will need to contact us if they are interested in taking part in the session.
The free ride sessions are designed to get more girls involved in freeskiing and snowboarding, that is park, pipe, moguls and big mountain. During the sessions, after warming up, we split into small groups and work on skills based on the demand.
In the terrain park it may be showing a group how to pop off a jump or slide a rail. Other times we may be teaching girls tricks such as spread eagles, grabs, 180s and 360s. Out of the park, we may work on mogul technique, short turns, long turns, how to read a slope, how to pop off natural features, skiing switch and sometimes basic things like how to tackle challenging terrain and conditions.
It is all based on what the group wants to do and we usually have 3-5 coaches for both skiing and boarding so we can get quite specific.
Participants need to be able to ride a blue run confidently, linking turns.
