A Nikita camp took place in Schnalstal, Italy and Julia Baumgartner and Elena Koenz were both there to coach and give some tips to the snow hungry ladies! Here's a little write up...
"The Nikita camp was organised through the snowboard club Gentlemenriders, in collaboration with the Italian distributors of Nikita, United Sports. It was full of sunshine (at least Friday and Saturday), perfect snow as well as a super park. The girls arrived Thursday evening as well early Friday morning. Straight after registration everyone went on the glacier to begin the warm up training. Nikita Chickita winner Elena Koenz from Switzerland was there to help out the girls. There were also two Fakieshop team riders to give some help and insider tips. Everyone was happy to learn something new and try out some new tricks.
Saturday saw Nikita rider Julia Baumgartner arrive to help coach the girls in the park. The entire day was filmed and everyone was highly motivated for the shoot. Another video analysis session was enjoyed in the evening with Elena, Julia and Bea. The highlight of the Saturday evening began with the video premiere of "Let's Make Better Mistakes Tomorrow" from Peep Show. Everyone marveled at the level of the girls’ riding including the one guy present. Subsequently the Nikita-Lipstick-party in Leo's pub went on in style until the early hours of the morning.
It began to snow overnight so on Sunday the glacier was thick with fog. After a couple of lines on the mountain everyone decided to head down the valley to be welcomed with some warm goulash soup. The talk consisted of the amazing three days had by all with a smile on every face."
Thanks to everyone involved including all the diligent helpers, the coaches Elena, Julia and Bea, the Fakieshop team riders, F tech for the park, as well as all participants for the super crazy weekend.
