Girls Do Ski, a women’s freeride ski camp run by Revelstoke’s Leah Evans, has expended for this winter, with three new backcountry camps.

Girls Do Ski includes Girls Day Out camps at Revelstoke Mountain Resort, Kicking Horse, and Whitewater, as well as a cat skiing camp with K3 Cat Ski, heliskiing with Selkirk Tangiers, and a backcountry skiing camp based out of Revelstoke.

“It’s exciting to be introducing new backcountry camps in addition to our resort camps this year,” said Evans, a professional skier and the founder of Girls Do Ski, in a news release. “Girls Do Ski is about helping women of all ages grow, learn and develop their skills on the slopes. My goal is that our skiers take the confidence they build at our camps and put it towards personal achievement and empowerment off the snow and into their every day lives.”

The camps are coached by professional skiers, including Evans, Izzy Lynch, Tessa Treadway, Sarah Frood and Leslie Hogg. The camps focus on improving technical skills and helping skiers push their boundaries.

Girls do Ski is also offering a 20 Under 20 program – a one-day camp for 20 skiers under the age of 20.

Registration for the camps opens this Friday, Nov. 8.
