Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is rolling out the welcome mat for ladies
looking to improve their tele and downhill skiing. The first event is
called Wild Women Wednesdays where you’ll be hosted 9 am – 12 pm by
local freeheel instructor Paula Steinheber. A fun day of tips and
techniques is planned at a cost of $89 per person.
If that seems a little tame for you then you better sign up for the
resort’s Real Aggressive Women’s Camp, March 13 – 15. RAW Camp
is a three-day event that will take you to your potential and beyond in a
supportive atmosphere coached by Big Mountain Centre female coaches and
guides. Included are demo skis, Eagles Eye lunches and a dinner finale back
up under the stars in the warm confines of the Eagles Eye restaurant.
Terrain management, line selection, avalanche awareness and
advanced-to-expert ski techniques are on the agenda. It’s not cheap
with the weekend totalling $540 per person but the resort is betting that
you’ll have the experience of a lifetime. If you’re interested
you better hurry because these spots tend to book up in a hurry. The RAW
Camps are designed to be a regular event so check their web for future
Finally, the last of the girls-only events at KHMR this spring is the
Rossignol Girls Day Out two-day ski extravaganza. Including lift tickets this
event is only $270 and it includes demo skis, big mountain coaching, lunches
and an opportunity to ski alongside professional big mountain skiers.
