Ski Clinics for Chicks

December 19, 2016

Skier doing a happy dance.

According to The Ski Diva, and really any girl who rips out there, you notice your crew is usually all-male… mine was, at least. I, very much like the author of that post, don’t have many females to ride with. In my 2017 Ski Instructor search, I was one of 3 girls at the initiation session of one location, and I am one of 4 female instructors at the mountain I chose to work at, total. “Growing up” and becoming the “breadwinner” and “homemaker” and “caretaker” all at once has taken a toll, and many a female drop the skis for the role of “woman.” However, organizations like Unicorn Picnic and sister company SheJumps are really trying to push the rad-chick agenda and get girls outside. The movement is growing, and loud. That is why I am SO excited about some of these clinics at nearby mountains below.
