There’s this feeling that goes hand in hand with the experience of enjoying a favourite pastime with a group of friends – it’s a pretty amazing combination of freedom and joy. But when that group of friends consists of all guys or all gals, it transforms into something truly special. The term ‘let loose’ sums it up pretty well. There’s a feeling that you can do anything and push the limits of what you thought was possible just by being part of a group of like-minded individuals. We LOVE this feeling. So much so that we’ve teamed up with Girls Do Ski again this winter to bring back one of our favourite events of the season, our Girls Do Ski heli-ski weekend.
We got in touch with Katie Marti, Media Relations at Girls Do Ski, to hear her thoughts on this event: “Heli-skiing is the ultimate freeski adventure, so, naturally, this is one of our most anticipated camps of the season. All of our guests have skied resorts before and some have even toured around in the backcountry, but very few have had the opportunity to spend a day heli-skiing – much less with an entire crew of super supportive, incredible women. It’s bucket list material. This year, we’ve also added an extra day to the program, so that guests have a chance to acclimatize and do a bit of on-mountain prep at Revelstoke Mountain Resort before heading out in the heli with Selkirk Tangiers on Day Two. We’re stoked because we truly believe the full weekend experience will allow ladies more time to connect with our coaches and will leave everyone feeling confident and enthusiastic for the season ahead.”
Meghan Tabor from Revelstoke Tourism recounted her experiences from last season in her blogpost, and summed it up best: “…What I’ll never forget is the smiles on those Girls Day Out campers after conquering their heli-day. Exhaustion began to set in, but spirits remained high right up until the very last turn. As the chopper lowered us back down into the clouds, thoughts were on Mt. Begbie brew and après – to relive the moments that will inevitably last for a lifetime. I know it’s a day I’ll never forget.”
