Women Coaching Women | Join us March 1-3, 2019!

“Some girls love diamonds, but some girls love black diamonds.” As I pulled up to the Needles Gondola with a crew of women high off their third powder run, this meme came to mind. We’d been skiing together for a few weeks, honing our skills, exploring new places, and sharing hidden powder stashes. (No, I won’t share. You have to join us to find that out.)

I have been skiing with the Divas, Snowbasin’s all-women's clinics that run on Thursdays and Saturdays, through February. We’ve shared priceless lessons, tackled the steeps and pulled each other out of a few snowbanks. We’ve also learned a ton, gained confidence on the slopes and found a few new smile wrinkles.

While sitting at lunch one day, I listen to the story of one of our instructors. “I was an intermediate skier, couldn’t keep up with my family, in the back seat and struggling... until I took an all-women’s class. It literally changed my life.” Tiffany Daines, mom of seven and grandmother to four, went on to pursue a career as a ski instructor.

Her kids (one having skied all morning with us) support her lifestyle change and said, “Mom, you are a better mom when you are out skiing.” She agrees, “I am happier. I am healthier. Skiing is now my life.”

Spend a little time with the women of Snowbasin, and you’ll find yourself inspired by dozens of these stories.

Whether you are looking for your new best friends, greater confidence, refined skills or better knowledge of all the terrain Snowbasin Resort has to offer, the all-women’s classes and clinics are for every woman. “You don’t have to be an expert”, Shawnee Sawyer exclaims, “these women’s clinics and camps are for all levels.”

This year Snowbasin has a three-day Women’s Camp with Olympian Jillian Vogtli. Three days of women coaching women. Of laughter, cheers, conversation, and friendship. Join Snowbasin March 1-3, 2019 for Women’s Camp. Lunch is included daily, with lodging options for those who are traveling from out of town.  I promise you won’t be disappointed and maybe your life will even be changed.

Rossignol will be offering complimentary demo skis for all participants and one lucky participant will win a FREE pair of Rossignol skis at the end of the weekend!
