SASS Global Travel, SGT, is proud to announce the return of their Signature Women’s Sessions with guiding and coaching by pro snowboarders Robin van Gyn and Hana Beaman at Cerro Catedral, Argentina this summer.
SGT’s Signature Women’s Session offers a bridge for women riders who want to make the leap into the backcountry by improving their snowboarding skills in powder conditions and by expanding their knowledge about avalanche awareness and safety. The vast terrain of the Patagonian mountains offers the perfect setting for adventure, fun, and camaraderie by pushing individual limits through big mountain backcountry riding in a supportive team environment.
We got in touch with Robyn van Gyn, a veteran coach of SGT, for her insight into shredding in Argentina. Here's what she had to say.
SGT Argentina: What makes it rad?
You’ve heard me say it a hundred times, but I just can’t seem to say it enough: SGT Argentina is the highlight of my summer. Family, friends, epic powder and mind-blowing terrain in one of the most interesting cultural settings you can imagine. I’ve been fortunate enough to ride all over the world and I can honestly say there is nothing else like it... anywhere. Get down here.
What are you most looking forward to during SGT women's session?
POWDER, most importantly. Can't wait to get back in the white stuff and a ton of it at that. Let's not forget how awesome it really is.
What do you feel is the overall best part of SGT?
The vibe and the people, that is a huge part of what keeps me coming back year after year. Everyone at SGT treats you like family and is there to give you the best possible experience on snow. Nothing but laughs and amazing snowboarding with a bunch of cool chicks!
Describe shredding in Argentina in five words:
The best powder shredding in the southern Hemi. (Shoot, that was 7, but who cares!)
