SNOWBOARDER Magazine’s Ms. Superpark returns at Big Boulder, PA
Carlsbad, CA (February 28, 2019) — SNOWBOARDER Magazine is excited to announce the return of the most esteemed women’s freestyle event in snowboarding, Ms. Superpark. With the generous support of Monster Energy and Nikita Clothing, Ms. Superpark 2019 is set to begin on Monday, March 11th at Big Boulder, PA as nearly 100 of the top female snowboarders from around the world descend on Big Boulder Park to showcase the electric state of their collective progression. For four straight days, Jess Kimura, Desiree Melancon, Maria Thomsen, Hana Beaman, Elena Hight, Jill Perkins, and more will spin, stall, tweak, slash, slide, flip and stomp never-before-seen trickery on terrain designed to cater to their skillsets in Boulder’s celebrated park.
The excitement for Ms. Superpark 2019 is evident among the ranks for professional riders. “It’s been a long absence of this greatly anticipated yearly gathering of the best snowboarders,” said multi-time Rider of the Year, Desiree Melancon. “I’ve missed this event. It’s when I make friends, see what women are capable of, and have a sense of community among my peers. Not to mention, it’s different to actually snowboard with the people you find yourself fanning out on over Instagram….”
As the event host for the 2019 edition of Ms. Superpark, Big Boulder, Pennsylvania is an ideal partner because of the resort’s dedication to inventive park building and continued support of women’s riding. With 8 parks filled with 113 features, Big Boulder offers a progressive playground in the Poconos that will catalyze creative snowboarding from the assembled riders over the course of the week.
“We are committed to supporting female snowboarders and dedicated to getting more women in the park through our builds, team initiatives, contests, and women’s-specific park clinics,” said Pat Morgan, Big Boulder Director of Freestyle Terrain. “It’s our goal to provide opportunities for all levels of female riders in the park. We couldn’t be more stoked to partner with SNOWBOARDER to add Ms. Superpark to this objective, not only through providing a world-class set up for some of the best snowboarders in the world, but also to provide a setting for the current top talent to inspire the next generation.”
Ms. Superpark has a history of offering a unique opportunity for snowboarding’s up-and-coming riders to shine alongside their peers, idols, and snowboarding legends. This year, the stage is set for this current generation to display their park prowess, showing what truly is possible when the women’s snowboarding community is provided a park in which to ride together.
“Jess Kimura, Kjersti Buass, Jamie Anderson, Desiree Melancon, Marie-France Roy, Hana Beaman, Cheryl Maas, Kimmy Fasani and Christy Prior are not just snowboarding icons who have spent their careers shaping our sport, but they also share the acclaim of being recipients of the Ms. Superpark Standout Award,” said SNOWBOARDER Creative Director, Patrick Bridges. “I can’t wait to see who joins this esteemed set in 2019!”
While Ms. Superpark is an invite-only private park session, all female shreds with the means are encouraged to come out to Big Boulder, PA for public evening ride along sessions with their favorite pro’s from 6:00pm to close from Monday-Thursday.
