Mt Hotham Falls Creek - - FRONT PAGE -

Falls Creek will have an event this month for fe­male cross coun­try skiers with a need for speed.

GIRLS just want to have snow at Falls Creek, as they gear up for an Aussie-first event.

On July 7 Fast and Fe­male Aus­tralia Inc are bring­ing the first ‘Fast and Fe­male’ cross coun­try event to Falls Creek on the back of the ski de femme.

Fe­male skiers got a taste of Fast and Fe­male in 2012 at Falls Creek, held un­der the Cana­dian Fast and Fe­male ban­ner, the con­cept was de­signed in the Land of the Maple Leaf in 2005.

The event is aimed at fe­males be­tween the ages of 9-19, and will be run in con­junc­tion with the an­nual Ski De Femme pro­gram, which in­vites all mums, daugh­ters, sis­ters, aunts and grand­mas to come along for a free ski les­son.

Fast and Fe­male is a new con­cept aimed at pro­mot­ing a healthy and fit life­style, and to mo­ti­vate and in­spire girls to stick with a sport and try main­tain an out­door life­style.

Some of Aus­tralia’s top fe­male skiers, Fast and Fe­male am­bas­sadors, will teach par­tic­i­pants a range of ski skills, through work­shops and games.

Speed and race starts, de­vel­op­ment of up­hill and down­hill tech­niques and strength and agility are some of the skills that will be taught.

An op­tional race af­ter­wards of­fers par­tic­i­pants to try out their new skills and to take on the per­sonal chal­lenge.

Af­ter the snow ac­tiv­i­ties there will be a chance to unwind the mind and body with a Yoga class, which will be fol­lowed by a talk by the Fast and Fe­male am­bas­sadors, about their tri­umphs and chal­lenges of com­pet­ing at an in­ter­na­tional and Olympic level.

Tick­ets are avail­able online at www.fallscreek­fa­s­tand­fe­ and are $12.50 for early bird online reg­is­tra­tion or $15 on the day.

Cost in­cludes ski ac­tiv­i­ties, Fast and Fe­male Buff, ski race en­try, healthy snack/ lunch.
