Early Bird Clinics Offered at Big Sky

Big Sky, MT – Skiers can start off on the right piste this season at Big Sky Resort in Montana with their Women’s Early Bird Clinic, December 5-6, and the Dan Egan Early Bird Camp, December 14-15.

The all-women early season ski clinic is taught by women, for women and removes the pressure of learning to ski like a man, organizers say. The session focuses on an individual’s performance and works toward mastering new techniques. This clinic is a building block to advance women’s skiing from the start of the season, allowing women to gain confidence on snow throughout the season.

“The idea of this clinic is to personalize a group lesson, provide key tips to improve your skiing throughout the season, and have fun meeting new friends who like to ski what you like to ski,” commented Dashelle Purchell, instructor for Women Clinics at Big Sky Resort.
