WINTERGREEN RESORT'S 2012 WOMEN'S SKI CLINICS

WINTERGREEN, Va. (Dec. 22, 2011)Wintergreen Resort will be hosting “Ski & Ride Clinics” for women taught by the resort’s female instructors who will blend personalized instruction with just enough challenge to bolster the abilities of all participants.

Wintergreen Women’s Ski & Ride Clinics are offered in 2012 on Fridays from mid-January (20 and 27) through mid-February (10 and 17).  Geared for women who want to improve their skiing and riding skills, the clinics are taught by Wintergreen’s PSIA/AASI female instructors.  Women can enroll for a single session or for the four-part series.  The clinics are from 9 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. with lunch and instruction included.  A one-day clinic costs $109; the four clinic series is $400.  Lift ticket and rental equipment are not included.

Women's Ski Weekend takes place February 4-5, 2012 when Wintergreen Resort and Alison Gannett team up to offer “KEEN Rippin Chix” ski camp for all levels of women’s snow sports enthusiasts.  The program includes two full days of instruction and video analysis that features Gannett’s famous steep skills toolbox instruction.  Huge prizes are awarded as part of Gannett’s sustainability trivia contest during Saturday’s post-event happy hour.  Brush up on the green and sustainability initiatives supported by Gannett and her sponsors, including KEEN, Patagonia, NEMO, Elemental Herbs and Osprey.

Instruction will focus on all levels of skiing, in a non-traditional teaching format, with several group levels covering the gamut from green runs to mastering the steeps.  The Camp price is $350 and space is limited.
