SASS Global Travel Announces Roxy Women’s Session in Argentina

New partnership between SGT and action-sports giant Roxy brings pro snowboarders Erin Comstock and Robin Van Gyn to Argentina for backcountry coaching, guiding and women’s-specific events.

HAMPTON, NH, June 13 — SASS Global Travel is proud to announce the launch of the 2011 Roxy Women’s Session at its SASS Argentina operation, taking place in Bariloche, Argentina from August 20th to September 3rd, 2011.  With Roxy athletes Robin Van Gyn and Erin Comstock coaching in addition to SASS’s already stellar coaching and guiding staff, the Roxy Women’s Session is focused on getting women riders into the backcountry and improving every aspect of their snowboarding, from jumping to steeps and trees and everything in between.

SASS Argentina has been at the forefront of progression in the women’s freeride movement for years with its programs designed specifically for female riders, and is proud to have Roxy on board as its partner for the 2011 Women’s Session.  “We had the whole Roxy team down last year and they had an amazing time,” said SASS Global Travel Director Travis Moore.  “We’re very happy to be bringing Robin and Erin back from the Roxy crew to coach an awesome group of women this year.”  SASS and Roxy will be putting together not only an awesome freeride coaching and guiding program, but will have a number of signature events going on during the Session like the Chicas Only slopestyle contest and a Women in the Industry seminar.  “SASS is the most unique program I’ve ever been to,” says Roxy’s Women’s Session coach Erin Comstock.  “You’re in the middle of winter, hitting cliffs, jumps, and powder.  It’s a camp for backcountry – that’s pretty awesome!”

The Roxy Women’s Session runs from August 20th to September 3rd, and riders can pick either week (August 20th-27th or 27th-Sept. 3rd) or both – perfect timing for the biggest dumps of the Southern Hemi season, known as the Santa Rosa.  Starting at $1995/week, Women’s Session riders will have access to all of SASS Argentina’s amenities, including slopeside lodging, daily breakfast and dinner, a backcountry awareness course, 24/7 support, local airport transfers, and discounted airfare through LAN Airlines in addition to the women-specific coaching, guiding, and activities.  More details and booking information is available online at or by calling 1.800.851.4660.
