Squaw Valley LogoMonday, April 23 will mark the eighth year Snowboarder Magazine’s Miss Superpark competition makes its home at Squaw Valley.  More than fifty of the best women snowboarders in the world will be heading to North Lake Tahoe in hopes of crushing the competition amidst some of the year’s most creative and progressive park features. Gretchen Bleiler, Erin Comstock, Jenny Jones, Jamie Anderson, Kimmy Fasani, Enni Rukajärvi, Jess Kimura, Kelly Clark, and many more are getting ready to tear up the park. 

As noted by Grind Networks, “Miss Superpark is dedicated to showcase the world’s best female riders on the world’s best terrain created by the world’s best park building teams.”

All features were masterfully crafted by the Squaw Valley terrain park crew, headed up by industry veteran Jessica Richitelli and in conjunction with Snow Park Technologies (SPT).  Richitelli is one of the only female terrain park managers in the nation.  Between Richitelli and SPT, we can expect an exciting course for the athletes to showcase their skills. 

This is the most highly acclaimed and heavily anticipated women-only event in the world of snowboarding, Snowboarder Magazine has been paving the way and constantly developing the contest, demonstrating their support of both women’s snowboarding and the sport in general.  Miss Superpark is constantly evolving as snowboarding does, and each year, the level of talent soars to a new level. 

Miss Superpark is going to be a thrilling show, and guests can be at the forefront of the action.  The best place to grab a seat will be off of Squaw Valley’s Siberia and Gold Coast chairlifts. 

The event will last through Thursday, April 26, and from the looks of it, it will be a cutthroat fight to the end.  At this ability level, it’s anyone’s game.
