November 1st marked the launch of Girls Do Ski’s 12th consecutive season. Registration for Canada’s leading free-ski camp provider for women is officially open and buzzing with pre-season excitement.
With a dedicated team of professional ski coaches and certified mountain guides, Girls Do Ski camps build mountain confidence, develop technical skills, and empower participants to push their personal boundaries. This holistic coaching approach sets Girls Do Ski camps apart from your typical ski lesson and lays a foundation for life-long growth in the mountains.
Girls Do Ski has expanded and adapted to meet the growing demands of today’s winter athletes with new camps, coaches and locations. New camps include two Avalanche Skills Training courses, two Intermediate Ski Touring courses and a Combo Camp which takes place on the resort and in the backcountry over the span of two days. With more personalized programs, women can expect to maximize their progression on skis in a safe, supportive and fun environment.
Their popular two-day resort camps are held at Revelstoke Mountain Resort and Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. Camp fees include professional coaching, two delicious lunches, workshops, Salomon demos, and guaranteed prizes. A professional photographer is present to develop moments into tangible memories.
For ladies looking to expand their knowledge and confidence in the backcountry, Girls Do Ski offers a variety of ski touring and avalanche skills training courses in Rogers Pass and Revelstoke Mountain Resort’s backcountry. Backcountry courses cater to different ability and experience levels with a female ACMG guide leading the way and guaranteed prizes to top it off.
For women looking for even more adventure, a week-long guided trip in Japan’s powder paradise, Hakuba, is available for its third year in a row. This unique winter experience takes care of guides, ski-in-ski-out accommodation, meals, facilitated workshops, hands-on instruction and the majority of transportation.
A handful of their camps still have availability including both Avalanche Skills Training courses, Japow and their Expert Ski Touring and Guides Course. You can find more information and details about each camp on their website.
Girls Do Ski recognizes the empowering possibilities that lie in the mountains and is committed to the advancement of female skiers. The 12 Under 20 camp and Rewilding Scholarship offer opportunities for motivated individuals to apply for select spots in camps and courses free of charge.
Salomon Skis and Patagonia are back as proud sponsors of camps and initiatives. Camp participants will have the opportunity to test out innovative new ski technologies and win exclusive give-aways.
Founder and professional skier, Leah Evans, is excited to announce the start of another ski season with Girls Do Ski’s expanded and empowering collection of camps. For more details or to register for a camp, visit www.girlsdoski.com.
