Over 24 years ago when we started Women’s Ski Adventures our goal was to make skiing more fun for women. We created a ski vacation where our guests wouldn’t have to worry about a thing. We wanted women to gain knowledge, build confidence, meet great people and have fun in the mountains. Today our goals are still the same. We love to ski and we love sharing the mountains with other people. Skiing is one of the only sports you don’t have to be good at to enjoy. As long as you’re confident, your equipment works and you like being outside, you will love to ski. The beauty, tranquility, exhilaration, and the sense of accomplishment that skiing in the mountains brings you is better than anything we know.
Women’s Ski Adventures are designed for skiers looking to improve technique and confidence, to learn about proper equipment, and to break through to the next level. Kim Reichhelm and her hand picked staff guide and teach on slopes suitable to your ability. If you are just learning, getting back into it after some time off or stuck in that intermediate rut, Kim and her ski guides know that environment is everything. If you are enjoying yourself and trust the people you are with, that’s when the break-throughs happen. Groups are small for individualized attention and divided by ability and aggressiveness so that will not be pushed too hard or get stuck standing around waiting for others. Kim respects your vacation time and will help you make the most of it. Kim believes “more skiing, less talking” is the way to improve; “one concept at a time and then practice, practice, practice.” Through video feedback in a private setting you will learn faster and have a clearer understanding of what you need to do to improve. If necessary, your equipment needs will be addressed and a technician is always on hand to help.
Women’s Ski Adventures addresses individual equipment needs and will teach you about equipment so that you have more confidence. Demo skis, boots, poles and helmets are available free of charge. If you are interested in buying equipment, Kim’s staff will help you through the process, ensuring your buying decision is the right one. Video review during our private après ski is extremely helpful. Not only will you learn how to change your technique but you will also learn how the right equipment will make skiing easier and more fun.

Women’s Ski Adventures
Date: December 14-17, 2012.
Kim’s winter home is Aspen, Colorado and there is nothing she likes better than guiding, teaching and entertaining on Aspen Mountains. With three resorts to choose from there is plenty of terrain and some of the finest on-mountain dining in the world. Our host shop, Gorsuch, is located at the base of the Ajax gondola where we will meet each morning for a cup of coffee and equipment needs. Kim and Aspen local and world class skier Dave Stapleton will share their years of knowledge and experience to help you take your skiing to the next level. Aspen/Snowmass is among the most popular ski destinations in the Western U.S. Nestled high in the Elk Mountain range of the Rockies, Aspen and its sister town of Snowmass Village, service four major ski areas: Aspen, Snowmass, Highlands and Buttermilk – easily the highest concentration of skiing anywhere in Colorado. The surrounding peaks are some of Colorado’s most picturesque, and offer a massive playground for winter activities. The region provides a free shuttle between areas, so you can enjoy the mountain of your choice regardless of where you stay in the valley.

Vail has always been a favorite stop on the Women’s Ski Adventure tour. Vail’s vast amount of terrain allows you to work on your confidence and technique, improving at your own pace. The back bowls of Vail are the perfect place to work on off piste skiing and with luck, to get some fresh powder tracks. If moguls are your preference, the Vail ski terrain presents some of the finest bump skiing in the world. With practice you’ll be gliding from one to another in no time. The endless groomers on the front side allow the less aggressive skiers to focus on new skills without any distractions. Small groups mean if you want to wait for it to warm up a bit it’s not a problem. If you want to get out first thing, you can do that too. Kim knows that this is your vacation and wants you to enjoy it the way you like it. When the day is over and your legs say “done,” it’s an easy ski down or download to our host hotel the Four Seasons in the Vail Village.

In March we head one of the most fun ski resorts in the country, Crested Butte, Colorado. The excellent location makes Steamboat a delight to visit; exceptional skiing and a true western town community. Crested Butte’s extensive terrain allows you to work on your technique and confidence improving at your own pace. From long wide-open groomers to perfectly spaced tree skiing, skiers can focus on new skills without any distractions. Small groups allow flexibility in the daily schedule and ski-in ski-out accommodations mean you can be on or off the hill in just a few minutes. Kim knows that this is your vacation and wants you to enjoy it the way you like it.
