Event description

Description

Join us for Wild Skills Junior Ski Patrol presented by Clif Bar, a day camp at Crystal Mountain Resort on Saturday, December 15! Young girls will learn mountain safety and first aid while working with the strong women of the ski patrol community. This event is intended for intermediate to advanced 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.

We will provide 1 to 2 female mentorship engaging all generations in the sharing of knowledge and understanding. Connecting experience, energy and love for our natural places with the technical and survival skills girls need to get out and adventure.


Schedule for the Day

The event registration opens at 9:30 am and is located in the Chinook Cafe area of the main lodge.

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

At 10 am we start the day at the Crystal Mountain Ski Patrol headquarters located at the base area near the gondola. Ski Patrolers will lead all teams in a morning meeting covering ski patrol basics, a tour of the aid room 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 will take place at Campbell Basin Lodge at 1pm. 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 Crystal Mountain 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.
