a snowy update

well chix, if you read the snow report you will know that EVERY SINGLE RESORT is getting a very welcome dumping of snow! it started snowing yesterday and it's going to continue well into next week!

excited? just a bit !!!  Nat and I are up at Buller this week and it's pretty wild and windy out there right now. most of the chairs are on wind-hold :( but the wind is blowing the powder stashes all over the place, so there will be some nice skiing through the trees when it's all over :)

which means that the 2nd CHIX SESSION is going to be a whole lot of fun ! are you planning on joining us ? if so, drop us a line either here in the comments section or on our facebook events page here, or you can email us at chickswithstix.skiing@gmail.com

in other very exciting news overnight, the IOC [International Olympic Committee] has announced that slopestyle will be included at the next winter games in Sochi Russia 2014. woo-hoo !!!

that's pretty big news for Australia as we have 2 of the best slopestyle skiers in the world right now: Russ Henshaw and our very own CwS coach Anna Segal who is currently FIS Freestyle World Champion, a title she won over in Park City Utah earlier in the year [check out this chat I had with Anna straight after her win]
