Mountain Riding Skills Level 1: The first day is designed for women who have ridden snowmobiles
looking to build their skills and confidence in the backcountry. Help us build a strong, safe and supportive
female riding community so that more women have the opportunity to experience this exciting sport.
Whatever your current skill level, there will be opportunity for growth. The below topics are covered:

  • Trip planning, gear ideas, avalanche equipment and avalanche resources (evening bonus);
  • Learn to switch from ‘flat track’ (trails), to ‘on edge’ (deep snow);
  • Integrate throttle and brake for control and flow;
  • Learn functional riding postures to increase strength and decrease fatigue;
  • Considerations for using the contours of the terrain to your advantage;
  • Tips and guidance for better communication and safety practices;
  • Route finding and hazard avoidance;
  • Explore mental components of backcountry decision making;
  • Elements of avalanche awareness present throughout course.

Mountain Riding Skills Level 2: The second day we will build on the first day learning. This course will
be customized and co-designed with group members to optimize our time together in the mountains. If
you can only make one day, we will accommodate your needs. Typically, women enjoy optimal skill
advancement by attending both days. Learning opportunities unique to the needs of each individual.
