We teamed up with our friends at Group Y this year to bring you MAHFIA SESSIONSan event series designed for females working in or interested in the action sports industry. The kick off event is taking place March 21-23 at Mammoth Mountain, CA in conjunction with Boarding For Breast Cancer‘s “Shred the Love” Tour. We created MAHFIA SESSIONS to highlight, encourage, educate, influence and entertain the unique network of females whose passions live amongst the active lifestyles of snow, skate, surf, wake, moto, bmx, music and more.
The highlight of the weekend is an industry panel titled, “A Tribute to Female Pioneers In Snowboarding” featuring some of the most influential women in action sports, including B4BC’s founders Lisa Hudson, Kathleen Gasperini, Shannon Dunn-Downing, industry marketing veterans Gaylene Nagel, Miki Keller and snowboarding & skateboarding pioneer Cara-Beth Burnside. We will discuss topics related to the past, present and future of females in action sports.
