About the Girlstorm...
This is a 2-day, women-only comprehensive weekend of snowkiting. Learn everything from safety and set-up to riding techniques to gear types and gear care. This is the third year of this fun and hands-on camp. It is a great opportunity to learn at your own pace in a great learning environment. No yelling, lots of encouragement and no one will underestimate what you can do.
All snowkiting abilities are welcome from the never-evers to those ready to really get riding smoothly or those ready to learn to jump and take it all to the next level.
The weekend runs: Saturday 12-4:30 and Sunday 9:30-1:30
We will provide lunch on Sunday as well as a goodie bag and patient, professional and enthusiastic instruction.
All kiting gear is included, you just need your skis/board/boots.
$250 per person
To register, please email Rachael.
