A few weeks ago Scandinavia’s biggest women only snowboard competition Piece of Cake was held in Åre Ambilight Snowpark.
With stunning blue bird conditions and spring sun, we just knew it was gonna be a good day. 23 girls from all over scandinavia came to battle it out and the level of riding was high as the sky. Already on training day the girls were so stoked, trying new tricks and having fun riding with each other. You could really tell that the level of riding had risen a lot from 2014. Progression of women snowboarding is massive right now!
It was also obvious how the girls enjoyed pushing each other rather than competing against each other. Riders were having huge smiles on their faces and really pushing their limits to make this day even better. Our Photographers and filmers covered the whole park all day making sure that the girls got the attention they deserved. This day women ruled the park and we could simply see that they were loving it!
Finals were amazing, Ingrid lonar and Malin Johansson who finished respectively second and third were giving a good challenge for the winner, but in the end last years third Sisi cavretti took home the biggest prize. She took the first place with an impressive run by starting of with a huge fs 720, followed by a fs rodeo 540 and heading to the railpart with a cab 720. Last years winner Cecilia larsen ended up on fourth place just before Laax ripper Louise Nordström.
In the hangout zone people were enjoying the nice weather trought out the hole day and watching the competition. DJs were taking care of the tunes and the guys at the crew prepared delicious burgers for the hungry people.
After the action in the park riders and event crew gathered at the nightclub Dahlbom for a nice dinner together. At the price ceremony even the organizers got a prize from all the riders and as everyone was stoked and happy, the party was ready to start! And with some sick breakdance battles the night was absolutely one to remember! Rumours says that even the afterparty went crazy. Involving some acrobatic moves and a concusion on the floor with the Piece of cake trophy ( a half meter long metal mini rail attached in a massive piece of wood.)
So, we organisers are again so satisfied with Piece of Cake and we are happy to thank everyone that made this day possible and so good! And if you missed it this year, you better watch out for next years competiton! It’s gonna be legendary!
