SheJumps Junior Ski Patrol
Join Fernie Alpine Resort for SheJumps Junior Ski Patrol, a day camp on Wednesday, March 29th, organized by SheJumps and Fernie Alpine Resort. Young girls will learn about mountain safety and first aid while working with the strong women on Fernie ski patrol.
This SheJumps Junior Ski Patrol event is structured as a full-day camp experience; parents/guardians drop the girls off, they are split into teams based on their skier ability and then rotate through different stations. Throughout the day, girls are taught a range of outdoor skills that ski patrollers utilize to keep the mountain safe. Girls work alongside female patrollers and volunteers to learn more about the many facets of mountain safety and first aid.
The event is open to girls – cisgender and transgender and non-binary people ages 8-17 who identify with the female community. Due to the nature of the event and terrain being used, this event is intended for intermediate to expert skiers & snowboarders that are confident skiing/riding off the Timber, Whitepass and Bear Chairlifts.
Cost: $50+gst per person which includes activities/lessons by ski patrol and volunteers and pizza lunch. A portion of registration fees will also be donated to SheJumps.
Limited spaces available. Visit the Fernie Alpine Resort website for more details on this event and many other great events.
