CANCELLED – SheJumps presents Wild Skills Junior Ski Patrol
Due to the ongoing concern regarding COVID-19, the SheJumps Junior Ski Patrol event will be cancelled. Please visit skifernie.com for further updates.
Join us for Wild Skills Junior Ski Patrol, a day camp on Monday, March 23, 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 Wild Skills event is structured as a full-day camp experience. Parents/legal guardians drop the girls off. They will be split into teams based on their ability and then rotate through different stations. Throughout the day, girls are taught a range of outdoor skills that are utilized by ski patrollers 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 intermediate to advanced skiers/snowboarders ages 8-17 who identify as female.
