Chicks with Stix re­turn

Mt Buller News - - FRONT PAGE -

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, which is why Chicks with Stix will be back for an­other year on the Aussie slopes for the 2018 sea­son.

It has been a cold snow sea­son so far - so hope­fully that means there will be lots of snow for each ses­sion, where Chicks with Stix get to­gether to have some fun, make friends, learn some new skills and push each other to go big­ger, higher and bet­ter in a sup­port­ive all-fe­male en­vi­ron­ment.

Chicks with Stix is a grass­roots or­gan­i­sa­tion that was founded in 2010 in Aus­tralia by a bunch of like-minded, pas­sion­ate snow lov­ing chicks.

Chicks with Stix aim to ease the pain, and be­lieve that in a friendly group sce­nario you can eas­ily push your­self a lit­tle more with needed en­cour­age­ment and op­por­tu­ni­ties.

If you are a fe­male who is con­fi­dent on blue runs (in­ter­me­di­ate to ad­vanced) and look­ing to progress your skills, then these Chicks with Stix ses­sions are for you, as you can learn to push your­self a lit­tle more.

Chicks with Stix of­fer fe­males the chance to ski and board along­side some of Aus­tralia’s most ex­pe­ri­enced fe­male freestyle and free ride ath­letes to help im­prove skills in the park and freeride, slopestyle and big moun­tain.

Join them on their ‘shred ses­sions’ for the chance to chal­lenge your­self in a sup­port­ive and friendly en­vi­ron­ment and im­prove your on­snow skills.
