HAMPTON, NH — SASS Global Travel is proud to announce the launch of the 2011 Roxy Women’s Session at its SASS Argentina operation, taking place in Bariloche, Argentina from August 20th to September 3rd, 2011. With Roxy athletes Robin Van Gyn and Erin Comstock coaching in addition to SASS’s already stellar coaching and guiding staff, the Roxy Women’s Session is focused on getting women riders into the backcountry and improving every aspect of their snowboarding, from jumping to steeps and trees and everything in between.
SASS Argentina has been at the forefront of progression in the women’s freeride movement for years with its programs designed specifically for female riders. It is proud to have Roxy on board as its partner for the 2011 Women’s Session. “We had the whole Roxy team down last year and they had an amazing time,” said SASS Global Travel Director Travis Moore. “We’re very happy to be bringing Robin and Erin back from the Roxy crew to coach an awesome group of women this year.” Not only will Roxy and SASS be putting together a great freeride coaching and guiding program, but they will have a number of signature events going on during the Session like the Chicas Only slopestyle contest and a Women in the Industry seminar. Coach Erin Comstock from Roxy Women’s Session said that, “SASS is the most unique program I’ve ever been to. You’re in the middle of winter, hitting cliffs, jumps, and powder. It’s a camp for backcountry – that’s pretty awesome!”
The Roxy Women’s Session runs from August 20th to September 3rd. Riders can either choose both weeks or the individual ones of August 20th-27th or 27th-September 3rd. The entire scheduled time is perfect for the biggest dumps of the Southern Hemi season, especially the infamous Santa Rosa storm. Starting at $1995/week, the Women’s Session riders will also have access to all of SASS Argentina’s amenities, including slopeside lodging, daily breakfast and dinner, a backcountry awareness course, 24/7 support, local airport transfers, and discounted airfare through LAN Airlines in addition to the women-specific coaching, guiding, and activities.
