Fernie Alpine Resort – SheJumps Junior Ski Patrol
Event Date: March 29th, 2023
Join us for SheJumps Junior Ski Patrol, a day camp on Wednesday, March 29th organized by SheJumps and Fernie Alpine Resort. Young girls will learn about mountain safety and first aid while working with the strong women on Fernie ski patrol.
This SheJumps Junior Ski Patrol is structured as a full-day camp experience, parents/legal guardians drop the girls off, they are split into teams based on their skier ability and rotate through different stations. Throughout the day girls are taught a range of outdoor skills that are utilized by ski patrollers to help keep the mountain safe. Girls work alongside female patrollers and volunteers to learn more about the many facets of mountain safety and first aid. A pizza lunch is included.
The event is open to girls – cisgender and transgender and non-binary people ages 8-17. Participants must have intermediate to advanced skiing and snowboarding skills to be able to get around the mountain to all the different stations and activities.
