More about SNOWGIRLS project:
Freeskiing and freestyle snowboarding are sports which are more and more popular in the world and in Slovakia more and more young people are involved in these sports. People, who are doing these sports, differ by colorful clothes, creative style of riding, wide choice of possible tricks, they get to know with snowparks and people who are already keen on these sports. At competitions the style and presentation of tricks are more important than the time. Freeskiing has been changing in a recent time as it was included in the Winter Olympics in Sochi (RUS) 2014.
Slovakia has female talents that not only excel in freesking and freestyle snowboarding, but also achieve success home and abroad. Since 2010 year the project snowgirls has begun to document riding, trainings and traveling of four successful Slovak riders (Zuzana Stromkova, Natalia Slepecka, Klaudia Medlova, Martina Molnarova). Through video episodes and tutorials the project offers view into the world of these sports, presents it to the public and encourages to try something new. Since February 2012 the project has gained a second wind and has begun to document the way of Natalia, Zuzana and Klaudia to the Winter Olympics in Sochi (RUS) 2014.
