About the event


Description (what this is)

This event is a low-cost educational opportunity through the Women’s Initiative Fund (PSIA/AASI WIF). The fund was developed by Snowboard National Team Member Stephanie Wilkerson (in conjunction with the national Women’s Advisory Group) to break down major barriers for women in snowsports.

Three major barriers to women succeeding in training have been reported:

  1. Cost
  2. Location/Timing
  3. Community - Talented Female Mentors

Learning Experiences (what you’ll do)

  • Recognize positive patterns in the learning environment using SBI model
  • Self empowerment strategies for performance and fun
  • Mental training and framing through visualization and other tools
  • Pushing physical/neural-emotional limits through an encouraging team environment
  • 4-dimensional skiing/riding: Get slideways, vertical, go deep and turned around

Learning Outcomes (what you’ll go home with)

  • Create meaningful/lasting connections
  • Inspire, develop and retain female talent on the slopes
  • Clear pathways for growth through useful positive feedback cycles from peers and mentors
  • Season-long support structures; a new kind of community through a network of women     
    • Social media
    • Zoom socials
    • On snow meetups
    • Correspondence



Women accomplish amazing things individually and as a group. Often these feats go unnoticed. A little support goes a long way. The invitation is out. Time to elevate. Barriers are oldschool.

Tickets are $25 per day and will be purchased on hill at Sugar Bowl by each participant.
