A bunch of shred queens, two shaperesses, a bluebird day and a unique park scenery: that’s the

summary of a more than amazing day at the first QParks Girls Shred Session presented by Burton

Girls at quattro Snow Park Obergurgl. A park that is exclusively shaped by girls! Cat and Sarah, the

shape queens of the quattro Snow Park, held a workshop in shaping, too, so there might be even

more shaper girls joining the QParks crew soon!

A Snowpark from Girls for Girls

Arriving at night is always something very special. You wake up in the morning, open the window

shades and boom! You get blown away by the most thrilling mountain view of Obergurgl. That’s

exactly how many shred girls started this beautiful day in the Tyrol. At 10 o’clock, the ladies gathered

at quattro Snow Park Obergurgl to meet park designer Sarah Abelin and multimedia shaperess Cat

Nicol. The two were more than happy to tell the girls all about their shred and shape careers. To get

to know the daily work of Sarah and Cat a little better, a workshop was integrated where the 15

participating shred queens could give their shape skills a try.

The get-to-know-each-other warm-up session over the boxes of the park was followed by a yummy

lunch break at the Hohe Mut Alm lodge in Obergurgl. Surrounded by the stunning view at the

panorama lounge, the girls were talking about the progression session which followed in the

afternoon. With the sun hitting the park, the shred queens unpacked their sickest tricks and the

rookies were happy to get tips from the more advanced riders taking part in the first Girls Shred

Session of the season. Inspiring each other, the afternoon session was a huge success for each and

every one. Tanks, rails, wallrides and the lollipop jib were the objects of desire. Thanks to the park’s

chair lift, it only took them 3 minutes and 20 seconds to be in the line-up for the next run, although

hiking was also popular amongst the sporty ladies.

Crew love.

At the end of the day, a happy and satisfied crowd was saying “goodbye and see you soon" to the

park, to Sarah and Cat and to new friends. If you wanna see more of the action at quattro Snow
