Nothing against the guys, but sometimes its great to spend the day on the slopes with just the girls, says Breckenridge ski resort spokeswoman Austyn Williams. Women challenge each other and learn from each other in different ways, and it makes for a completely different experience on the mountain.
Brecks Womens Ski Fest runs February 2 through 6; packages starting at $375 include small-group intermediate and advanced instruction with some of the resorts most popular female instructors, as well as feminine touches like a spa treatment, cocktail party, lunches on the mountain, a celebration dinner and take-home gifts. Lesson groups meet at 9 a.m. each day in the Peak 9 village and are limited to four students per instructor.
Bring your crew or come up and meet some new skiing partners, says Williams. Youll be on the hill with some great women all day and then relaxing with cocktails and the full Breckenridge après-ski experience. And if you prefer snowboarding, the Womens Snow-board Fest is later this month, February 24 through 27, with all-mountain and/or park and pipe instruction packages starting at $275.
