I so look forward to January because of Sundance Ladies Day. It truly is the highlight of my winter. Today was the last day of the January Session and I will miss it. I can definitely use more ski lessons before I ski as beautifully as I want to, so maybe I will come back in March (February is WAY too busy and my boss wants me back at work). But, this session included some of my favorite women AND the best instructor on the mountain! How do you top that?
There is just something about Sundance that seems tailor-made for women hanging out together. As I sat at the bottom of Jake’s lift waiting for my daughter and her friends to finish skiing today (they had enough energy to do several additional runs after I was finished), I saw so many women skiing. Friends who came up to enjoy the day together or moms with their kids. Skiing seems like an aggressive sport that intimidates women, but the environment at Sundance is so laid back and inviting that it is the perfect place for us. I have been to other resorts that remind me of a snow-covered Disneyland–way too many people, way too long to get to where you want to be, way too much distraction. Sundance is calm, nurturing and natural.
This year, will be remembered as one of the best with several of my friends and my daughter’s friends getting on the slopes for the first time ever or in a long time. Some of these women I only met on the mountain but they now are my Snow Sisters! We have stories to tell, experiences to remember and better skiing skills.
If you have ever thought about getting back into skiing or starting to ski, Sundance Ladies Day is the way to do it. The supportive learning environment makes it easy to learn, the instructors are top-notch, and getting to know the other women is so dang fun. Come be a Snow Sister with us!
