The ski clinic begins Friday evening with a meet and greet in the Olympic Room with Densmore from 6-9 p.m. Saturday starts with a presentation from her on trends in women’s ski gear during a continental breakfast. Participants then select demo skis to test and head to the slopes for a total of four hours of group skiing, as well as individual video analysis, lunch, and an après ski party with a question and answer session. Sunday, skiers meet for breakfast with a presentation on skiing outside your comfort zone. That afternoon you ski specialized terrain, including a NASTAR-style course, steeps and bumps. The clinic ends with an après ski party, and each participant is entered for a chance to win a new pair of Dalbello ski boots.  

Since founding Your Turn women’s ski events, over 7,000 women have had breakthroughs in their skiing while participating in Densmore’s clinics around the U.S. Feel confident when you hit the mountains.
