SAFE AS — Women’s Avalanche Safety Workshop Series — only the most fun, important, and kick-ass way to welcome the winter season!
SAFE AS (Skiers Advocating and Fostering Education and Avalanche Snow Safety) invites women ages 14 and up with intermediate or better skiing or snowboarding ability to an introductory avalanche course bundled up in a fun-filled day of yoga, classroom and on-hill instruction, food, camaraderie, and an aprs-ski party with an overflowing prize raffle. The SAFE AS curriculum benefits everyone from seasoned backcountry adventurers with previous avalanche education to the merely curious, as well as backcountry and sidecountry novices and everyone in between.
Join Warren Miller movie star Lel Tone lead each one-day snow safety and avalanche course, assisted by professional skiers Jackie Paaso, Michelle Parker, Elyse Saugstad, and Ingrid Backstrom and the expert yoga guidance of Sherry McConkey. Their aim is to provide critical information and education in a fun, open, encouraging environment, with an emphasis on discussion, participation, and hands-on learning.
We hope to see you (or, if you’re a guy, a woman you care about) there!
