Jacobellis Hosts Super Girl Snow Pro
Ten-time X Games Gold Medalist, four-time Olympian, and U.S. Snowboardcross Team member Lindsey Jacobellis is set to host the 2020 Super Girl Snow Pro at Bear Mountain in Big Bear, Calif. Feb. 22-23. Lindsey is psyched about this year’s improvements to the only all women’s snowboard competition in the world.
“I’m really happy that we have been able to expand the space we are working with this year,” said Lindsey. “We have more real estate for boardercross than ever before and we were able to spread out where big air jump is going to be. Essentially, this means that wherever spectators are located on the deck at Bear Mountain, they’ll have a great viewing experience. In addition, I’m excited to share that we have more World Cup riders participating this year including a good percentage of the Canadian National Team. We definitely stepped up the big players attending the event.”
The event will serve as a showcase for the best of women’s snowboarding in a contest completely designed by the riders, including top-level snowboardcross and big air competitions. The event also serves as a developmental contest to help encourage, nurture, and mentor the next generation of aspiring female snowboarding pros. More than 100 top amateurs will compete alongside their heroes. This year the amateur contest will serve as the final qualifier into the USASA National Championships March 27 - April 2 at Copper Mountain, Colo.
The Super Girl Series is about much more than landing on the podium. The event supports sustainability efforts through the Southern California Mountains Foundation and breast cancer prevention through Boarding for Breast Cancer. Furthermore, the mission of the event is also designed around the honorable sentiment of providing opportunities for women to be front and center in sports, entertainment, education, business, and popular culture.
“This is an event that I am extremely passionate about," said Lindsey. "It’s incredibly important to lay the foundation for the future of women’s snowboarding, and this event does an amazing job of empowering women and putting pros and amateurs together in a unique environment so we can pass along our experiences to the next generation.”
In addition to the high-level snowboarding competition, the event features live concerts with Stephanie Poetri, New Hope Club and Ally Brooke, female DJs, panel discussions, autographs, giveaways, sponsor booths, and more. Don’t miss your chance to see pros like Lindsey and her U.S. Snowboardcross teammates Meghan Tierney and Faye Gulini. Admission is free for spectators.
