Saturday was our second chix session at Buller and it was our biggest turnout ever - 36 chix rocked up and some serious girl power took over the mountain!
CwS coach Katya tells us more.....
"In the afternoon, the coolest chicks on the mountain all met at 3pm at Koflers for a quick hot chocolate before we ventured out for an hour and a half of skiing. Despite the weather not being 'brilliant', the snow was great and everyone was really enthusiastic. We skied the recently opened Standard Run, as well as a few down Shaky Knees. Due to the massive turn out, we decided to split the group into three. Zoe took the girls who were up for learning 180s; Katie, with her moguls experience, worked on short turns; and myself and Nat took those who were keen to try some big carve / big mountain turns.
We had girls of all ages and from all skiing backgrounds. Everyone seemed to have a really great time, meeting new people and doing what we all love... skiing!
At the end of the afternoon, the Chick of the day was awarded to Alice (from Australia's aerial development program) for nailing her first 180 spin! She won a pair of sexy hot pink poles, kindly donated by Shafted ski poles.
To finish up, the girls wound down by doing a one hour yoga session at the La Trobe Centre. A great way to finish off a fun afternoon!
I'm really looking forward to my next Chicks with Stix session !"
