We will spend three days skiing based in the Tetons near Jackson, WY learning how to ski and/or improve your skills if you are an experienced skier. We will have a backcountry component for the final day of the camp including avalanche education, and how to safely travel in the backcountry. Evening workshops and self care routines will be offered through Medicine Wheel Wellness. This year’s camp will feature guest coach Annette Diggs who is the Founder of EDGE Outdoors, a PSIA Level 1 certified ski instructor, and dedicated Equity Advocate.
