Ladies Day

by Sarah16. February 2013 11:34

Whether it’s improving technique, conquering steeper terrain, tackling moguls or exploring glades, when it comes to hitting the slopes there is always something that we can, and want to, get better at. Although, often when you’ve been skiing for a while it’s all too easy to get complacent and you need someone else to really push you to the next level. Ladies Day offers us females the chance to step it up a notch but in a comfortable and enjoyable environment.

Last Thursday I joined the ladies for what was a fantastic day of skiing and dining! After being divided in to small groups based on individual ability we headed off for a warm up run. Our instructor Liz wanted to know what particular things we each wanted to improve on so she could make sure to cover it during the lesson. We then spent the morning focusing on technique over a range of different terrain. After a 2 hour lesson, we met back up with the other groups at Mantles Restaurant for a delicious lunch. We all sat together and chatted about the runs we had skied and what we had learned as well as our shared passion for skiing at Sun Peaks!

There are definitely varying motivations for attending Ladies Day, of the 3 other women in my group one was a regular attendee who lives locally while the other two were on vacation from Canada and Australia. When I asked them why they decided to attend one lady said she was struggling to keep up with her husband and son and so was hoping to improve her confidence, while another said she liked the social aspect of the day - the fact that you can share your love of skiing with other like-minded women. Whatever your motivations are for attending there’s no denying that there are lessons to be learned and serious fun to be had!

Ladies day takes place every Thursday and provides women of all ability levels the chance to not only improve their technique and build confidence on the mountain but make new friends along the way. A wonderful experience that I would highly recommend! For more information on Ladies Day click here.
