Why I started a ski camp for girls:
When I was eight years old I remember watching Diane Roffe and Picabo Street win Olympic medals. My two pet bunnies instantly had their names changed, to Diane and Picabo. Professional women athletes are given an opportunity to reflect a positive and healthy image to young girls in sports. In 2011 I couldn’t think of a better way to accomplish this then by starting a camp reflective of what I would have wanted when I was a little girl.
This camp provides the unique opportunity to be coached by not only the best females in the sport of skiing, but the best role models. I recognize that skiing has given me incredible opportunities and shaped who I am today. The staff and myself are dedicated to sharing our wisdom, knowledge and experience with the next generation of female skiers.
As we enter our 3rd year of ski camps for girls, we are as motivated as ever in providing young girls with the best possible ski camp experience.
