March 21, 2015 BILLABONG presented PARK QUEEN, a girls only ski & snowboard event, at Ski Wentworth, Nova Scotia. This is always an INCREDIBLE event and a fun way to end the season - SUN, warmer temperatures, a full park and PIZZA. You couldn't ask for anything else!
We missed a few of our regular competitors due to March Break but we were SO excited to have 15 female participants and 6 female coaches out on the snow all day. MANY of these ladies were there to experience their first ever freestyle clinic and contest, awesome!
The morning started out with the coaches and participants spreading into 3 groups and spending time of all of the features in the park learning how to approach them and then how to do a variety of new tricks! Many of our ski group landed their first 180 during the clinic and the snowboard group learned back 3's and a ton on the boxes.
At lunch, Billabong presented our fantastic pizza party! Wentworth pizza, cookies and a large drink selection lead to full bellies and a ton of smiles and laughes at lunch.
The afternoon contest warmed up quickly, the group had incredible energy which was supported by a large group of spectators (fans!) and encouraged by our phenomenal announcers, Christina Retson & Oceanne Fillon (both were 2015 Canada Winter Games athletes!). Thanks to Christina and Oceanne for keeping the music bumping and all of us laughing through the entire afternoon.
A HUGE THANK YOU to our amazing sponsors as none of this would be possible without them!
Our contest winners left with Billabong winter jackets along with a ton of other prizes and everyone left the event with something ALONG with the awesome check-in bags!
