For the month of November, Keely’s Camp in collaboration with Blizzard, Tecnica, Stio, and Shred ran the 7th Annual Girl On Fire Sponsorship Contest. The purpose of the sponsorship is to provide equipment and support for one female skier, between the ages of 11-17 years old, who is excited about learning to backcountry ski. We asked applicants to submit a one minute video which included a clip of them skiing and an explanation of why they felt excited about getting into the backcountry. The winner receives a full backcountry ski setup including: Blizzard Zero G skis, bindings & skins, Tecnica Zero G Ski Boots, Shred helmet, goggles, sunglasses & back protector, a Stio Raymer jacket, and a spot to our Montana Backcountry Camp for Girls in April. The Honorable Mention recipients receive a package of Keely’s Camp swag.
THANK YOU to all of the athletes that entered this contest! We had a number of very inspiring and thoughtful video entries this year and we appreciate all of the time that went into your submissions. The winner of the 2019/2020 Girl On Fire wowed us with lots of skiing clips, photos, and motives for wanting to expand her love for skiing into the backcountry (and an inclusion of an awesome animation mid video!).
The 7th Girl on Fire:
Congratulations Ella, Cami, Neave, and Kaia!
