6 Reasons Why Skiing with Girls Rules

Oct. 29th 2014

The backcountry isn’t a place reserved solely for testosterone. While the current demographics of the sport’s participants are slanted in favor of the boys, a day in the hills without Y chromosomes offers a completely different, yet totally enriching, experience. And thanks to products like the Freedom SL and the Gea RS, girls have never had better gear for getting out there. Here are some of the best aspects of skiing with the gals according to our athletes Annelise Loevlie, Rebecca Selig, and Shaun Raskin. You better believe that farts are involved.

Huckstable – Selig heads south for Freeskiing World Tour

Aug. 19th 2011

The 2012 Freeskiing World Tour kicked off last week in Las Lenas, Argentina. Rebecca Selig, a SCARPA-sponsored athlete, finished 3rd, beating out thirty other female skiers. Selig has been performing exceptionally well this past year, placing 1st in the World Tour qualifier in Jackson Hole back in January, 3rd in the North American Freeskiing Championships, and 5th overall in last year’s tour.

Rebecca has had a knack for hucking herself since before she can remember. As a child, she was jumping into the swimming pool before she could even swim. Nicknamed “Huckstable” by her friends, Rebecca was launching herself off cliffs on her skis long before she turned pro in 2008. She has always pushed the limits of female freeskiing and is continuing to do so on the 2012 Tour.
