Women’s camps

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 three 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, plus 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…

WOMEN’S PERFORMANCE CAMPS 2019/20

We coach in small all-female groups with Emma and her team, for either two full days or five full days with off-snow activities too.

Our performance camps will develop technique in all areas of the mountain, both on-piste in carving and short turns, and for higher levels off-piste in variable conditions, powder and bumps.

Our only camps which are almost all off-piste are our Backcountry groups.

All details about the levels are explained below.

FINALLY, A FEW WISE WORDS:

“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.

By 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.”

Mikaela Shiffrin, World Cup & Olympic Champion
