SheJumps Junior Ski Patrol
Fernie Alpine Resort is hosting a SheJumps Junior Ski Patrol event on Wednesday, March 29.
Young girls will learn about mountain safety and first aid while working with the strong women on Fernie ski patrol. This event is structured as a full-day camp experience; parents/guardians drop the girls off, they are split into teams based on their skier ability and then rotate through different stations. Throughout the day, girls are taught a range of outdoor skills that ski patrollers utilize 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 girls – cisgender and transgender and non-binary people ages 8-17 who identify with the female community. Due to the nature of the event and terrain being used, this event is intended for intermediate to expert skiers & snowboarders that are confident skiing/riding off the Timber, Whitepass and Bear Chairlifts.
Cost – $50 +gst per person which includes activities/lessons by ski patrol and volunteers and pizza lunch. A portion of registration fees will also be donated to SheJumps.
Limited spaces available – register via the button below.
**Please Note: RCR Event Waivers are required to be done during the registration process. If you are 15yrs of age or younger, your parent must complete the registration & waivers for you.
