SheJumps Wild Skills Junior Ski Patrol Camp
February 22, 2020
Join us for Wild Skills Junior Ski Patrol, a day camp at Loveland Ski Area on Saturday, February 22! 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 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.
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 Lower Ridge Room of the Main Lodge. You’ll check in at registration 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 Ski Patrol headquarters where patrolers will lead all teams in a morning meeting covering ski patrol basics and our agenda for the day. From there teams will break out and proceed to various stations throughout the mountain. Stations cover topics including first aid, mountain safety, toboggan use, snowmobile safety, weather and avalanche basics & prevention. Along the way there is free skiing, surprises and games, of course!
Lunch consisting of pizza & salad is included in the day. Please note, we are unable to accomodate eating restrictions. After lunch, all teams will proceed to the Avy Dog Demo where handlers will educate teams about the avalanche dog program and demonstrate a burial rescue situation.
The afternoon will wrap up with the remainder of station visits, free skiing, anytime skills and a informal awards ceremony starting at 3:30 pm.
