Have Fun, Learn Skills, Tackle Fears At Women-Only Northeast Ski Workshops

Start the year focusing on you with a women's getaway. (Sunday River)

Whether you want to take your skiing and riding to the next level, tackle fears or just take time for yourself, there’s a women’s program at a Northeast resort that can fit the bill. 

Sunday River's Holiday Hangover, Jan. 4-6, 2019, is a women-only wellness weekend that focuses on fitness, food, and above all, fun. "We came up with the Holiday Hangover concept to provide women with a chance to unwind after the busy holiday season. By combining an opportunity to ski, shop, dine and do yoga, attendees have the opportunity to connect with like-minded women with a passion for the outdoors. Hosting it at our slopeside Jordan Hotel also gives the feeling of a true escape, as it is tucked away at the western-most point of our resort," Sunday River's Karolyn Castaldo told SnoCountry.com.

While many women's clinics focus on improving their skillset, Castaldo told us Sunday River wanted this to be more of a celebratory and relaxing experience.  There will be the opportunity to take lessons for those who would like to, but the itinerary is geared towards fun.

Windham also hosts Off-Piste Prep For Women, Feb. 7-8, 2019, for skiers who want a supportive environment to develop the skills and tactics necessary to ski ungroomed terrain, including bumps, powder, crud, and steeps.
