In these three days the women show where to go!
Often women can learn and apply better among themselves “without men”. In this way you can grow beyond yourself and increase your self-confidence in a small group with other women

The target of the camp is:

  • Independent tour & freeride descents planning and execution
  • Be self-confident on the road
  • Getting to know like-minded women

That means concretely:

  • Route planning
  • Refresh & construction LVS, probe, shovel
  • Advanced Ski-Skills (Ski technique at your level)
  • Materials science (less is more)
  • Handling rope and hardware for e.g. couloirs
  • Abseiling, Rescue, Improvisation
