Joining the Girls Shred Sessions AND doing something good for the environment – is that possible? Well, we say YES!

Climate change comes along with a lot of challenges for us: On one side, we love winter sports, spend most of our free time on the mountains or in cars on our way to the resorts and we’re always super stoked about perfectly groomed slopes and parks. But on the other hand we know that ecological sustainability and winter sports are often hard to combine. But that doesn’t mean that we have to quit our favorite hobby! Sometimes, we simply have to change some habits!

In order to set an example for climate protection, the Girls Shred Sessions joined forces with Protect Our Winters. Together, we want to present ways on how to reduce your carbon footprints on the mountain. Therefore, we’d like to offer you some carsharing and public transport possibilities for the Girls Shred Sessions. And besides that, you can easily find new shred-friends!

Carsharing

In our new “Girls Shred Sessions” Facebook group you can connect with other shred-motivated girls and coordinate your journey to the Girls Shred Sessions jointly. If you’re looking for a lift or if you want to offer a carsharing opportunity to others, this group is the best place to get in touch with others!

This way, we also want to foster the communication within the female park community and want to provide a platform to find other fellow girls for your next shred session!

Public Transport

You can also travel to some of our sessions by using public transport!

  • Obergurgl: Take the train from Innsbruck to the Ötztal train station, then change to the bus to Obergurgl. It’s faster than you think!
  • Planai: Travelling to Schladming by train is super simple, because there’s a great connection and the train station is very close to the Planai West gondola. Furthermore, the cheap Flixbus runs between Graz, Schladming and Radstadt!
  • Mayrhofen: Thanks to the Zillertalbahn, there’s also a great train connection between Innsbruck and Mayrhofen.
  • Hochkönig: From Salzburg, but also from other cities, you can also reach the Hochkönig by bus and train very easy and fast!

Of course, that’s just one little step in the fight against climate change. But, if we put all our forces together and do whatever we can do in order to reduce our carbon footprint, we can hopefully still enjoy many more winters on these beautiful mountains we love so much!
