In the last few years more and more contests have been held in Europe exclusively for girls. Kickerlines, rails and other obstacles specially designed for the needs of the female riders were built and put to use.
In the summer of 2006 a few of the most popular European AM – Girls contests united to create the Soul Gang Tour, sponsored by Cooler. Throughout 2007 the Soul Gang Tour will be taking stops around Europe to celebrate female snowboarders.
- 27-28 January 2007: Girls Gone Wild Contest in Villars, Switzerland (Slopestyle)
- 09-10 February 2007: Chiquitas Jam in Mladé Buky – Krkonoše, Czech-Republic (Slopestyle)
- 15-17 February 2007: Frozen Water Jam in Nordpark/Innsbruck, Austria (Slopestyle)

- 10-11 March 2007: Pinky Jam & Soul Gang Tour Finals in Palù Park/Chieas in Valmalenco, Italy (Slopestyle)
With stops in Austria, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Spain, France and Italy, every contest is an independent event with its own sponsors and winners.
In addition, each winner from all stops on the tour will be invited to the following stop of The Soul Gang Tour and to the Finals at Pinky Jam Italy.
There is also a separate judging for the complete Soul Gang Tour, ending with the final event Pinky Jam in Italy. There the various awards will be handed out and appropriately celebrated.
Soul Gang Tour Winner and Pinky Jam winner will be invited to the famous INTERGIRLACTIK TTR event, part of the TTR Women’s Tour.
More than a tour, the Soul Gang Organization will promote women riding everywhere in Europe, as a window of women snowboarders.
