Event description
Join us for SheJumps Junior Ski Patrol, a day camp at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort on March 19th!

About this event

Join us for SheJumps Wild Skills Junior Ski Patrol, a day camp at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort  on Saturday, March 19th! Young girls will learn mountain safety and first aid while working with the strong women & men of the ski patrol community. This event is intended for intermediate to expert skiers/snowboarders ages 8-17 who identify as female.

This SheJumps Wild Skills event is structured as full day camp experience, parents/legal guardians drop girls off, they are split into teams based on their skier ability, and then rotate through different stations. Throughout the day, girls are taught a range of outdoor skills that are utilized by ski patrollers to keep the mountain safe. Girls will work alongside female patrollers and volunteers to learn more about the many facets of mountain safety and first aid.

Schedule for the Day*

On the day of the event, you’ll check in at registration beginning at 9:30am, get your Wild Skills Junior Ski Patrol packet, and meet up with your team for the day. Teams will consist of 1 ski patroller, 3 SheJumps volunteers, and 8 girls of similar ski ability.

At 10 am, we start the day with a all teams morning meeting covering ski patrol basics, weather, and our agenda for the day.

From there teams will break out and proceed to their various stations throughout the mountain. Stations cover topics including first aid, mountain safety, toboggan use, snowmobile safety, gear caches, weather, and avalanche basics & prevention. Along the way there is free skiing, surprises and games, of course!

Lunch is included in the day and all teams will eat together in a reserved area. After lunch, all teams will proceed to the Avy Dog Demo where handlers will educate teams about the JHMR avalanche dog program and demonstrate a burial rescue situation.

The afternoon will wrap up with the remainder of station visits and a informal awards ceremony starting at 3:30 pm.
