Women's Day Out! Join us for Backcountry Skills Improvement with Ski Divas and The American Alpine Club. Come improve your backcountry skiing/riding skills in a constructive fun environment with ski mountaineering guide, freeskiing champion, and Ski Divas founder Jessica Baker. Come meet your fellow backcountry divas and learn new tricks of the trade in the beautiful Teton mountain range. The course will cover decision making, snow science, ski technique, avalanche response, powder skiing, and more.
