It's this notion that has inspired the folks at Keystone to hold Betty Fest, a weekend of girls-only workshops and activities that takes place three times throughout the season.
The Fest is open to betties of all ability levels and includes extensive on-hill training with certified women instructors, video analysis, yoga, an après party and female-specific discussions about nutrition and equipment, held in a fun, non-intimidating environment. Tickets for this early-season session, which opens today and continues tomorrow, are $180 for Betty Fest alumni and college students and $195 for new students; the price does not include lift tickets. Regular-season Betty Fest sessions run on January 26-27 and February 9-10 and cost $200 to $215; Keystone also offers special one-day women's ski workshops throughout the season on Wednesdays.
