Now in its sixth year, Nikita Chickita USA is an all-girls snowboard contest open to amateur and pro riders alike of all ages and abilities. This year the slopestyle competition will be taking place at Brighton Resort and the expectations are yet again high after some amazing riding saw a nearly even split of pro and amateur riders competing last year. Over 70 girls showed up to compete for the chance of winning a one-year Nikita sponsorship (Ams) and $1000 prize (Pros). The big winner in 2009 was Marley Colt, a 17 year old from Eden, UT in the Ams category and Joanna Dzierzawski from South Lake Tahoe for the Pros.
Despite having a contest format, the whole Nikita Chickita vibe is about making sure everyone has a great time getting together and having fun riding. With no age groups everyone is equal and last year saw Nikita riders Magalie Dubois, Vera Janssen, Maribeth Swetkoff, Gabby Maiden, Femke Henriques, Colleen Quigley and Madison Blackley all taking part and supporting other competitors.
With a one-year Nikita sponsorship up for grabs again this year for the winner of the Am contest plus a ton of prizes from the likes of K2, Seychelles and BC, Pom Pom Wax and of course Nikita streetwear and outerwear, we expect to welcome a lot of girls making their way to be a part of the Nikita Chickita experience once again. Pro riders will be competing for cash prizes; 1st will receive $1000, second $700 while 3rd place will leave with a pocket purse of $300. Not only is the contest there to enjoy, but we’re looking forward to busting some moves on the dance floor in the evening when the party time kicks off!
