Is It For Me?
If you’d like to spend the weekend skiing with a community of like-minded female skiers, then this is the package for you. You’ll ski in a team with other skiers of similar ability and work with your Instructor to decide on your destination for each day.
Delivered in association with Black Crows and their specially designed range of female skis: the Birdie range. Black crows don’t just shrink it and pink it. This range has been designed from scratch, balancing ski shape, waste, length and weight dimensions to produce an award winning and much acclaimed range.
This package is open to all abilities and groups will be paired according to experience.
