Ski Girls Rock, a new premium lesson program developed by Minnesota-raised Lindsey Vonn is led by female instructors and focuses, not only on improving skiing and racing skills, but also empowering girls through the sport. It builds on developing students’ confidence while developing friendships, teamwork and social skills. All girls that have participated in one of the camps this season get to meet Vonn when she comes to Afton on April 1 for a special Ski Girls Rock closing party.
The two-day program costs $195 for non-passholders and $155 for passholders. It runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and includes lunch.
Afton’s Spring Fling takes place this Saturday, March 14, with on-slope activities—races, mogul competitions, costume contests and the infamous water skip—scheduled throughout the day.
Welch Village is offering online $25 lift tickets, available Monday through Friday, for the rest of the month. With an ample snow base covering all 60 runs, including the back bowl, and warmer temperatures in the forecast, get out and enjoy some spring skiing and riding. It doesn’t get much better.
