Join SheJumps + Jackson Hole Mountain Guides for a women's only Deep Pow Camp in Grand Teton National Park.

About this Event

Take your backcountry touring skills to the next level by learning side-by-side with other women in a positive and encouraging environment. SheJumps and Jackson Hole Mountain Guides present a women-only Deep Pow Camp. This two day camp is ideal for the backcountry skier or rider looking to become a more active member of a backcountry group or prepare for an AIARE 2. Over the two days in Grand Teton National Park, participants will refine their navigation, skin track setting and downhill travel skills with help and advice from their guide, Betsy Manero. All of this will happen while taking in amazing views and skiing/riding some of the most classic descents in the Tetons.
