This is a fun, informal camp for those ladies that want to progress their level of skiing in the big mountains of Alaska. The camp will be a very smooth transition to eventually skiing more technical lines with sluff management, line selection, snow assessment, and much more. The theme of the camp will be all about support and communication in an encouraging environment.
There will also be video filming on the first day so women can gain a visual perspective of their skiing strengths and weaknesses prior to heading out for day two.
Activity days (“down days”) will involve fun activities such as transceiver drills, crevasse rescue training, hikes through the temperate rain forest, ski touring, relaxing in the PNH sauna and much more!
“Alaskan Ladies’” is limited to experts due to the goal of the camp. Please feel free to call or email about ability questions.
I have been skiing (filming for ski movies, participating in photo shoots and guiding) at Points North Heli-Adventures in Cordova, Alaska for the last 12 years. I am very familiar with the terrain, conditions, snow pack as well as having the vital credentials it takes to guide in Alaska. I have been very fortunate to have skiing take me around the world and have found my favorite place to be Cordova, Alaska…nothing compares!
I started “Alaskan Ladies’” due to the amount of amazing women skiers I see on a daily basis.
I know that creating the right environment is the key to trying things that maybe you would not try otherwise. This is my goal, to show women their true given talent and to help them reach a goal like skiing a peak that not everyone gets to do.
