What’s the plan?

Whether it is your first time in the backcountry or you’re a seasoned pro, we’re going to bring amazing women together for an awesome 3 day backcountry weekend. During the weekend you will learn or improve:

  • Backcountry Safety & Avalanche rescue drills
  • Learn to ski tour or improve your touring technique.  (First time ski tourers welcome but a good level of fitness is required.)
  • Manage conditions and how to ski variable conditions.
  • Line choice.  Learn how to choose a line down to suit your style
  • Learn tools to overcome fear, manage stress and pressure.  Rachel will be leading morning meditations to help set your mindset.
  • Develop decision making skills while out in the backcountry.
  • Channel into your intuition to help keep you safe.
  • Feel the support of a like-minded community of women.
  • Swap stories of what ex-boyfriends have said to you “you’re too slow, I’m not skiing with you again.”  “I guess I’m just stronger than you”.  We’ve all heard it.  See yah later guys!  We’re ripping now!!!

What skill level is required and who will be there?

Don’t worry we won’t be following Jackie off any crazy cliffs (unless you want to) but what better opportunity to learn or improve your backcountry skills than with Jackie Paaso. Our  group has max 10 spots and we will have amazing certified guide(s) with us to keep us safe and help improve our safety knowledge while out touring.  We always get asked “am I good enough to come on the trip?”  If you are a good skier, have a good level of fitness and a stoked attitude then the answer is yes.
