3 ladies joined me this past weekend for the Backcountry Intro Camp - this is a camp developed to get girls comfortable to start venturing into the backcountry without their significant other, but maybe with a group of friends. We worked on basic skills like leaving the trail and basic sled handling in addition to some trip planning and general mountain sledding etiquette. We had a pretty socked in day but we kept venturing on, even when the "boys" were all turning around and heading down the mountain. These girls were determined and learned fast! I sure hope to see them back for the 2-day bootcamp! I get really inspired when I see ladies learn skills so fast and just want to keep riding even when their arms and bodies are telling them "no more"!
