RINCÓN, PUERTO RICO – May 14th — SASS Global Travel (SGT) is proud to announce the return of our Signature Women’s Sessions with guiding and coaching by pro snowboarders Robin van Gyn and Hana Beaman at Cerro Catedral, Argentina this summer.

SGT’s Signature Women’s Session offers a bridge for women riders who want to make the leap into the backcountry by improving their snowboarding skills in deep powder conditions and by expanding their knowledge about avalanche awareness and safety. The vast terrain of these Patagonian mountains offers the perfect setting for adventure fun, and camaraderie by pushing individual limits through big mountain backcountry riding in a supportive team environment.

Year after year, we at SGT find ourselves at the forefront of progression in the women’s big mountain freeride movement and this year we promise to continue along and expand upon the tracks we have already set. “You’ve heard me say it a hundred times, but I just can’t seem to say it enough: SGT Argentina is the highlight of my summer. Family, friends, epic powder and mind-blowing terrain in one of the most interesting cultural settings you can imagine. I’ve been fortunate enough to ride all over the world and I can honestly say there is nothing else like it… anywhere,” said pro snowboarder Robin van Gyn. “Get down here.”

The SGT Argentina Women’s Session runs at the perfect time to experience biggest powder dumps of the Southern Hemisphere season, known as the Santa Rosa. “After the response to this program last season, we couldn’t be more excited right now for 2013,” said SGT Managing Director Travis Moore. “We’re definitely expecting another sell-out season.”

Starting at $2495 for a signature 8-Day program, Women’s Session riders will have access to all of SGT Argentina’s amenities, including lodging just steps from the gondola, daily breakfast, tea and dinner, backcountry education, 24/7 logistics support, local airport transfers, and discounted airfare through LAN Airlines. In addition, SGT Women’s Session coaches will be offering women-specific coaching, guiding and optional apres and evening activities. More details and booking information are available online at or by calling 1.800.851.4660.
