Chicks on Sticks! Women's Ski Camps and Clinics.

By Active Alyssa \ January 3 2018

Build confidence. Get involved. Be connected. Experience the Mountains. 

When it comes to trying something new, or stepping out of your comfort zone, you want to be in an inspiring environment with people who can encourage you every step of the way. Ladies I'm talking about learning how to ski for the first time while having trained instructors to help guide you through a great experience. With these women's ski camps offered at Utah ski resorts, you'll be in a non-competitive group with other women sharing your same experience. Feel empowered, supported, and uplifted by like-minded females. 

January is Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month, and I want to encourage all you ladies to get out and start enjoying the mountains! Sure they are pretty to look at from inside a warm cabin with a mug of Hot Toddy, but don't let life pass by with you sitting on the side lines! It's time to experience the slopes with all your senses.  Get out there and don't miss out on these Deals! $49 includes lift ticket, ski rental equipment, and ski lessons for first first time skiers! Brian Head, Deer Valley, Eagle Point, Powder Mountain, Snowbasin, Solitude, and Sundance all have special offers to get the newbies set to ski or snowboard!

Many of the Utah resorts have camps and clinics to teach skills and improve confidence and variable terrain. Take your skiing to the next level by attending any of these groups:
