Women's Freeride & Yoga Camp

Women’s Freeride & Yoga Camp 2012

The Women’s Freeride & Yoga Camp with KJUS and Kästle Skis from 18 to 20 March this year was a huge success! I was very proud to welcome the 12 participants who had applied for 2 days freeriding in one of Austria’s best freeride areas, Lech Zürs am Arlberg. When I first started directing women’s camps in 2007 it was hard to get a group of female skiers together, now we had two fully booked groups of ripping women, raring to go! Local Hero Geli Kaufmann and I guided the women during the camp and many new friends were made.

Lots of new friends were made at this year’s Women’s Freeride & Yoga Camp in Lech

A lot of the participants were experienced off-piste skiers and also enjoy ski touring, but only rarely with other women. It is a great experience to ski in a female-only group, the group vibe is incredibly supportive and hugely encouraging, a perfect environment for learning new skills and improving confidence. The camp this year focused on skiing some great runs together and honing off-piste skiing technique. Participants were able to test the newest KJUS jackets and Kästle freeride skis. A guided Yoga session was offered for optimal recovery the following day, and participants really enjoyed the wellness-area and good food and wine in our Hotel Kristberg. We were even accompanied by professional camera man Carsten Darr for a day, check out the video below! I hope to make next year’s camp even better so sign up to my newsletter to stay informed.
