Girls Do Ski is bringing their backcountry expertise to Golden for a special women’s freeski camp.

Revelstoke based Girls Do Ski, Canada’s leading freeski camp provider for women, is offering Girls Day Out camps at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, among others.

“It’s exciting to be introducing new backcountry camps in addition to our resort camps this year,” says Leah Evans, professional skier and Girls Do Ski founder. “Girls Do Ski is about helping women of all ages grow, learn and develop their skills on the slopes. My goal is that our skiers take the confidence they build at our camps and put it towards personal achievement and empowerment off the snow and into their every day lives.”

The camp will include coaching from some of B.C.’s most accomplished professional female skiers, including Evans, Izzy Lynch (who recently filmed with award-winning film makers Sherpas Cinema), Tessa Treadway, Sarah Frood, Jill Young, Leslie Hogg, Megan Sime, Emma Mains, and Marie-Claud Larivee. Also joining the team is professional ski photographer, Zoya Lynch.

Coaching is focused on improving technical skills and pushing personal boundaries in a safe and supportive environment. The camp also provides technical workshops about ski year, and inspirational talks to encourage participants to explore their reams and potential, both on and off the slopes.

“It is our fifth year in a row hosting one of our Girls Day Out camps at Kicking Horse, we’re stoked to be back,” said Evans. This will be the fifth season the group has travelled to KHMR for camps.

The resort’s amenities are unmatchable, from group gatherings at the big mountain centre to the exquisite lunches at the stunning Eagle’s Eye Restaurant. Kicking Horse’s terrain is a perfect location for learning and enjoying the beautiful backdrop of the rocky, Purcell and Selkirk mountain ranges says Evans.

The KHMR camp is from Feb. 15-15, 2014. To register, or for more information, go to www.girlsdoski.com.
