Women looking to escape to the slopes can enjoy a special day at Washington’s Mission Ridge. Two Women’s Escapes are scheduled in March. The programs are designed for skiers or snowboarders of any ability. The morning sessions include coaching by snowsports professionals followed by lunch. The afternoon is open for skiing and riding with new friends.

Women’s Escape programs run on March 8 and 20, 2014. The $69 fee includes the coaching, lift ticket, rentals, lunch and a gift. The rate drops to $50 per person for a group of four or more who sign up together.

The Saturday March 8 program begins at 8:30 a.m. The Thursday March 20 program starts at 9:30 a.m. Skiing each day starts 30 minutes later. Registration is available online.
