WOMEN IN SNOWBOARDING – A HISTORY

“Women in Snowboarding – A History” is the fifth video segment from a collection cut out of the 2009/2010 Swatch TTR TV Show series and is the first part of three that will focus on influential women in snowboarding and the development from the early days.

The first part of the “Women in Snowboarding – A History” series delves into the complexities of being a female snowboard athlete and the development of the female side of the sport. Early pioneers such as Tara Dakides, Janna Meyen-Weatherby and Stine Brun-Kjeldaas talk about the early days of snowboarding and how women pushed their way into the spotlight and began staking their own claim.
Lisa Wiik, Chanelle Sladics, Kjersti Ostgaard-Buaas and Cheryl Maas all look back on the importance of these pioneers of the sport to the current situation on the TTR Tour. Chanelle talks about how Tara, Janna and Stine all paved the way for the current generation of riders to work hard and make a career out of snowboarding, saying “We have such blessed lives, it’s so cool to connect with those girls, because they are the reasons why we are getting paid and they’re the ones saying: Hey we can do this too.” Also sharing their views on the importance of the TTR Tour for women are Torah Bright, Silvia Mittermueller and Sarka Pancochova.
