Girls Shred Sessions 2018 – Info & Schedule

The Girls Shred Sessions are back again! Also in the winter 2018, female riders will have a shredalicious time – QParks takes care of that with a number of events. Together with experienced coaches they’ve set themselves the goal to gather as many girls as possible in the snowpark, where they can work on their shred skills. During 7 sessions in 7 snowparks the girls will receive tips and tricks about shredding by professional snowboard and freeski coaches.

Girls Own The Park

That’s the motto under which female snowboarders and freeskiers from all around the Alpine region have come together for joint shred sessions for 6 years now. For a whole day it is all about refining tricks or just gaining a first insight into the freestyle scene. Drop by for a session in the following parks:

7 Sessions in 7 Parks

The Snowpark Obergurgl is fueled with extra girls power, because at the Diamond of the Alps even the park is shaped by a female-only crew. In the Superpark Planai you are welcomed by the Blue Tomato team riders themselves and especially more advanced riders shouldn’t miss out on the Girls Shred Session in the Penken Park Mayrhofen. The badenova Snowpark Feldberg provides a sweet setup for everyone who wants to work on their jib skills. For all of you who like to soak up Italian sun, the Girls Shred Sessions stop in the Snowpark Alta Badia for the very first time. And also the Golden Roofpark Axamer Lizum invites all chicks to a girls-only session this winter which is the closest girlsonly ride from Innsbruck! At the final event, the Blue Tomato Girls Day at the Blue Tomato Kings Park Höchkönig, you will meet the coaches from Blue Tomato once again.

What to expect

At the Girls Shred Session you spend a whole day together with pro coaches in the snowpark. In a relaxed atmosphere you can work on your shred skills with the help of the coaches while getting to know other motivated shred girls:“It was definitely cool! In Julia, who I got to know here, I also found a new friend with whom I can shred the park from now on.”, says rider Theresa. On top you get lunch and goodies provided by Blue Tomato, Nikita, Golden Ride, Planet Sports, WeAre and QParks for free.

QParks Tour is going down this season!


It was back in 2003 when the first contest forged by the QParks founding fathers swept across the alps. We held the first Pleasure Jam up at Dachstein glacier and all the riders were stoked. For many years to come, the unique thing about the Pleasure Jam was that – through qualification – also rookie snowboarders were given the chance to compete against international superstars and some of them quickly made their leap onto the global stage. However, as big as some of their names have become, as little was the number of those who made it into the finals.

So in 2010 we finally decided it was time to launch the QParks Tour as the biggest amateur contest series in the Alps. Not anymore just for the sideway standers, but also for freeskiers rocking our setups with their twin tips. To guarantee constant conditions and quality setups, the Tour has always and exclusively been held in QParks. Participation still is free, there’s also free catering and international and certified judges cater for fair rankings. 

And it was a huge success. As of today, a community of 500 riders out of 15 nationalities will jump and slide down 9 different QParks in 4 countries – and their number is growing every winter.

We have all the dates for the upcoming contest season and also crafted a little teaser to get you pumped! All info here


As thick layers of snow have covered our mountains, more and more QParks are opening their lines for your weekend’s shred!

Among them, Snowpark Schöneben will already open with its entire setup, then we have Familypark Obergurgl, Blue Tomato Kings Park Hochkönig,  SKYLINE SNOWPARK SchilthornSnowpark Kreischberg, Snowpark Turracher Höhe, Superpark Planai, Snowpark Großarltal, Penken Park Mayrhofen, Snowpark Val Thorens and so on…
