FROM 26 JULY TO 2 AUGUST – IT’S GIRLIE WEEK AT THE GFS CAMP
WITH GUEST STAR MARIE MARTINOD
For the 2014 edition of the summer camps, GFS has decided to dedicate a week to female riders who want to develop their freestyle technique. During Girlie Week, GFS Camps have invited two French freestyle stars to join them: Tignes rider Marie Martinod, iconic pioneer of women’s international freestyle skiing, silver medalist at the Olympic Games in the half-pipe in Sochi (multiple medal-winner at the US Open and the X Games) and best female slopestyler in France Coline Ballet-Baz, a young rider with a host of medals to her name already.
With an all-female cast – it’s time to make the boys sit up and take notice!

OLYMPIC NUMBER TWO IN THE FIRST EVER SKI HALF-PIPE
FIRST OLYMPIC MEDAL-WINNER FROM TIGNES
The ski half-pipe became an official event at the Olympic Games for the first time in Sochi. On Thursday 20 February 2014, Marie Martinod entered the history books by becoming the first ever Olympic number two in the ski half-pipe.
Marie is a skier like no other. A pillar of female international freestyle skiing from 2004-2007, she then disappeared from the Freeskiing scene to take a career break. But it was the announcement of the ski half-pipe event at the 2014 Olympic Games that persuaded her to get back on her skis and take her sporting career and destiny as a champion back into her own hands. So Marie joined the Tignes team once again to give herself the best chance during this Olympic year – it was a great decision!
