Verbier Women’s Camps

Our women’s camps are designed to unite an awesome group of girls to ski together, enjoy the mountains, and learn from the expertise of some of the best female instructors in the alps.

We know that women learn differently from men and by creating a women-only group we can focus on the psychological and physical areas specific to female skiers, and take your technique to the next level.

We run a mixture of weekend and week-long camps with four different levels through the winter, aimed to inspire, motivate and encourage you to have the best time skiing, whilst challenging yourself to improve your skill set to be more confident in the mountains.

On the camp you’ll gain a deeper understanding of your technical skills with on-snow coaching, from the off-snow sessions you’ll learn about biomechanics, psychology and receive video analysis to enhance your learning even further.

It’s a combination designed to help you move off that plateau and conquer the mountain by improving your technique in an inspiring and motivational environment.

From now on “skiing like a girl” is a compliment…

OUR LEVELS

INTERMEDIATE:

You are comfortable on blue slopes and most red runs. You want to develop your technical skills so you feel more confident on steeper runs, icy and choppy pistes.

ADVANCED:

You are comfortable skiing all the pistes on the mountain in parallel. You are ready to learn how to do short turns, carving, as well as an introduction to moguls and some basic cruisey off-piste.

EXPERT:

You enjoy skiing pistes with a variety of radii, and you have skied some bumps, itineraries and cruisey off-piste and get down them. You’re ready to deepen you understanding of the technical skills to conquer these areas with more finesse and challenge yourself more in the mountains.

BACKCOUNTRY:

You are an all-mountain skier looking to experience an adventure, learn more about the mountains and improve your technical skiing. You feel comfortable skiing off-piste in a variety of conditions including some steep terrain.

The course will cover an introduction to ski touring and avalanche training from a UIAGM guide, plus technical ski coaching from Emma to be able to explore further a field.(Avalanche kit is required for this camp. Only runs on certain weekends).

“I connect almost everything that I learn in life back to skiing in one-way or another. Skiing has provided an environment where I can immediately apply things that I learn. Skiing gave me a place to practice my work ethic, motivation, confidence, and the more I have skied, the more those qualities transferred into the rest of my life. Be learning to be confident in my skiing, I learnt to have confidence in myself, my body, my mind, my family, and everything else around me.”
