unnamed (2)Skier Cross athlete and two time Olympian, Katya Crema carved it up over the weekend at Mt Hotham as part of the Chicks with Stix 2014 Throwdown. Chix with Stix is an initiative to get young girls involved in snowsports, encouraging them to push through to the next level.   

“Through the Chix with Stix events we provide young females the support and coaching they need to improve their skills,” said event founder Zoe Jaboor, mogul skier turned free-rider.  The program gives girls the opportunity to build their confidence while training alongside some of Australia’s top athletes.”

Katya Crema, Ski Cross Olympian and ambassador for Chicks with Stix was at the event to offer guidance to some of the participants. “I love going out skiing with young girls that absolutely love the sport and I get so much from seeing them improve”, said Katya. “The standard is increasing all the time here in Australia. I think that the next generation of snowsport athletes is looking promising throughout moguls, Ski-X and Boarder-X categories and I believe that in four years’ time we will have a really strong team for the Olympics in South Korea. The more girls that get involved from a junior development level, the more opportunity we will have for females to represent Australia at the Olympics. Events such as these help to boost the numbers of females considering taking snowsports to that next level. We actually had more Australian female than male athletes at the Sochi Olympics for the very first time which is really encouraging” said Crema.
