Women Converge on Big Sky

Big Sky, MT – Women are kicking off Big Sky Resort’s ski season with a two-day Women’s Early Bird Clinic December 6-7, and the second annual SheJumps “Get the Girls Out” event on Monday, December 22.

The Women’s Early Bird Clinic is taught by women for women, focusing on an individual’s performance and mastering new techniques. Lead by Brenna Kelleher, PSIA instructor and former NCAA ski racer for Montana State University, this specific clinic is a building block to advancing one’s skiing from the start of the season, allowing women to gain confidence on snow. The program is geared toward woman already skiing at least blue runs.

The “Get the Girls Out” program helps connect girls and women as they support, challenge, mentor and inspire each other through outdoor activities. In 2006 professional skier, Lynsey Dyer co-founded SheJumps, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to increasing women’s participation in the outdoors. Women of all ages and ability levels are encouraged to join the one day SheJumps event.
