For the second year in a row almost 60 ladies of all ages and ability levels descended on Silverstar Mountain to participate in the ladies only weekend. The weekend is set up as a day of coaching where the ladies are divided into small groups and work with their coach followed by a day of freeriding. We also have a group dinner on Saturday evening where everyone can decompress from the day and play some entertaining games for the chance to win some sweet swag.

I am always so stoked that we get to bring together some of the best coaches from across BC (and yes I am totally biased).
