Girls Day Out, a program of Girls Do Ski, focuses on off-piste skiing, including bumps, rollers, powder, trees, and steeps. The program targets women ages 14-50 to increase confidence and improve techniques in off-groomed terrain.
Two Girls Day Outs programs are scheduled in March. Both include coaching from professional big mountain women skiers, lunches, Rossignol demo skis, sports psychology tips, prizes, and an on site professional photographer to capture the action. Creative journaling has been added to the program this year.
The first weekend camp scheduled for March 5-6 takes place at Revelstoke. Lunches at Revelstoke will be served in the Rockford Grill. The two-day camp costs $225 CAN. The camp plus a two-day lift ticket costs $335 CAN.
Kicking Horse hosts the camp the following weekend March 12-13. Lunches will be served in the Eagles Eye Restaurant. Rates run $199 CAN for the camp and $280 CAN for the camp with two days of lift tickets.
Registration for the camps is available online.
Girls Day Out was founded by big mountain skier Leah Evans who just won the Freeskiing World Championships in Revelstoke. Evans has also won the 2010 Canadian Freeskiing Open and the 2010 Wrangle the Chute.
