Progressing Women Snowboarding is at the heart of WSF Pro Women.
During its second season in the upcoming 2016/17 winter, the event series looks forward to increase its event line up from the success of previous year.
A worldwide interest in supporting women and girls events, dedicated to grow the skills and subsequently increase participation through high profile ambassadors, was expressed during the WSF GA in May 2016.
Throughout the 2016/17 Winter, WSF Pro Women events will be led by some of the best Pro Riders in the world, organized and hosted by National Snowboard Organizations and dedicated Women Event Oragnizers across Europe, Asia and America.
Exciting events with high profile shred ambassadors and locations in Finland, China and the US are already confirmed! Stay tuned for a detailed line up, information how to join an event near you!
WSF invites all national associations, organizers and riders that already have a women contest on their schedule to be part of this initiative.
