Orientation

Do I need to attend? What is discussed?

We strongly encourage everyone to attend the orientation, since we discuss any schedule changes and help you determine your skiing group. This is also a chance to meet your pro and other potential group members as well as meet all the other women.

We use your profile form to help split you into your respective groups at orientation. Groups may be further sub-divided based on your confidence level and goal preferences..

Will I stay in the group I choose on my profile form??

Not necessarily. The form helps us understand the make-up of our guests which will be further refined at orientation and on Sunday morning.
