It also includes a private room with bag storage for you equipment at the day lodge.
Borrowing a line from women's skiing guru Jeannie Thorn, women ski different, because they are different. Women stand differently on a ski because of different weight distribution than men, according to Thorn. They have different needs and look at ski terrain differently than men do. Women who have been to women-only clinics say they come away with a lot more sense of what they need in equipment and how to ski; to turn, edge control, weight distribution, posture, etc. It will make a difference in just the way you look at a slope or trail and give your confidence a big boost.
The Peaks has special lodging packages set up with the nearby French Lick Resort and Casino starting from $89 per person, double occupancy. This is truly one of America's grand old hotels. Ask about the lodging package when you sign up for the clinic.
