August 11 – 12: Chicks with Stix is a grass-roots organisation that was founded in 2010 in Australia by a bunch of like-minded, passionate snow loving chicks. Our aim is to provide much needed encouragement and opportunities for girls who ski and snowboard and are interested in freestyle skiing and boarding. Girls are different to boys, but big mountains, mogul bumps, the half-pipe, aerial kickers and ski x burns and jumps don’t differentiate. It’s ‘one-size fits all’ and it can be daunting.
