Explore new terrain or learn techniques to excel in challenging snow conditions? The top female instructors here at Whistler Blackcomb come together each month to provide The North Face Women’s Ski Camps. With two mountains, lift line priority, and an awesome group environment – The North Face Women’s Camp is the perfect place for female skiers to up their game.

How to get the most out of your women’s camp: advice from local skier Christie.

Get ready to meet the raddest coaches of your life! These camps give you a chance to forge a strong camaraderie with peers and coaches alike in this unique learning environment. A common complaint among skiers is the difficulty of finding peers with similar skiing goals and interests, and that’s why The North Face Women’s Camp is here.

Bring a positive attitude, a willingness to learn, and set some goals before you arrive. Giving the coaches an idea of what you want to achieve during your camp will help to structure your weekend and help the coaches focus on what is important to you. 

If you need to rent your gear, be sure to book in advance online at epicmountainrentals.com the day before your reservation. The Blackcomb Daylodge has a large fleet of high-end rentals to help you find equipment best suited to your skill level and skiing style, as well as the changing conditions. Your reserved rentals can be picked up anytime after noon on the day before your reservation date. Remember, guests must wear masks at all times inside our rental locations!

Face coverings can get soggy after a full day of fun, so it’s best to bring a buff for morning, one for afternoon and a mask for your meal breaks indoors. If you want to bring a small hand sanitizer in your pocket, your instructor can refill it as needed. Instructors will carry wipes this year for added protection too.

Stay fed and watered. You must make a reservation for on-mountain dining before you arrive this year as the mountain is preparing the tables to ensure you remain physically distanced. You can reserve the three lodges mid-mountain on the morning of, beginning at 7am, or reserve Merlin’s, the GLC or Dusty’s in advance here. Bring water and snacks to fuel yourself whilst skiing. A little water pouch in your pocket can go a long way as you spend your day playing in the snow.
