An annual event at the Little Cottonwood Canyon Resort, Snowbird's camps target individuals looking to gain experience and confidence in the resort's legendary steep terrain or women skiing and learning together in the for-women, by-women camps.

Each of the camps is a three- or four-day combination of on-hill coaching, video analysis, perspective, tips and insights from professionals, product demos, a welcome reception and more.

In addition to Snowbird's staff of qualified instructors who make these exciting camps safe, challenging and fun, professional skiers Dave Richards, Charlotte Moats, Dave Steiner, Gordy Peifer, Linda Peterson, Ulmer and Nobis will be attending at least one of the 2002 camps.

The Steeps Skiing Camp is designed for intermediate through expert skiers interested in expanding their experience and comfort level on steep terrain. The four-day camps will take you from groomed intermediate slopes to the steepest terrain Snowbird has to offer.

Students enrolled in Snowbird's Steeps Camps will also be trained in basic backcountry avalanche skills, transceiver and harness usage, and rappelling.

Coached by PSIA-certified instructors alongside professional skiers, students will gain extensive knowledge and experience in steep backcountry techniques.

Women's Ski Camp
Dates January 20-24; March 3-7
Cost $500

For women, by women, Snowbird's Ski Camps are extremely popular thanks in no small part to the dedicated staff of female instructors. This group of Professional Ski Instructors of America-certified women, led by supervisor Nona Weatherby, provides instruction and motivation in a non-competitive setting that fosters learning and fun. Each session of the four-day camp includes at least six hours of on-hill coaching and skiing, video analysis, breakfast, fitness tips, product demos as well as a welcome reception and awards dinner.

This year's camps are scheduled to feature world-renowned professional skiers Kristen Ulmer, Linda Peterson and Charlotte Moats, who will share their approaches to skiing.
