When it’s “Nine Queens" time again and countless female snowboard pros conquer Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis, the top-notch resort in Tyrol traditionally becomes the center of attention each year. However, in order to support all the up-and-coming female riders, the Girls Shred Session presented by Burton on the 12th of March gathered about 15 motivated girls to practice their skills at the Jib and Progression Circus. All participating snowboarders received helpful tips by Birgit Rofner during a relaxed session and improved their skills.

The Queens in the Mountains

Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis offers the perfect conditions for the girls – a creative setup and plenty of time to work on new tricks. At the annual “Nine Queens" in March, the world’s leading female snowboarders shred an incredible and massive castle of snow. The participants of the Girls Shred Session even got an exclusive preview of this castle and paid the Freestyle Circus Serfaus a visit accompanied by the shred queen Birgit Rofner.

Pushing Your Skills, that’s the Motto

For the third year now, Birgit is proving her skills at the “Nine Queens“ and she’s always up for a cool park session among girls. That’s why the 21-year-old is the perfect choice when it comes to supporting the participants of the Girls Shred Session. No matter if it were the first slides on the butter box or the proper way to jump on the rail, Birgit had the perfect tips for everyone and took the girls’ skills to the next level. Their progress wasn’t just applauded but also captured by the QParks media crew. The gallery with the snowboard pics of the session can be found on the Feel Free website!

Progression is Rewarded

The girls more than deserved the neatly packed goodie bags they received after the session and as a special bonus, “Nine Queens" project manager Lukas Krista took his time to show the group around the backstage area of the huge castle! A glorious way to celebrate the successful kick-off of the Girls Shred Sessions presented by Burton at Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis. There’s no doubt that the girls will be thinking back to this amazing day for a long time. Just see for yourself – check out the snowboard highlights in this cool edit.
