Women's ski clinics in New England

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone. Just got back from the honeymoon. Wedding and honeymoon went by flawlessly. The funny thing is that the honeymoon was in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Our flight literally left about 6 hours before the tropical storm hit land.. exactly where we were staying (super fancy hotel at a great value - Riu Palace). Anyway, I digress..

On the coming season, both my wife (yeah..) and my sister would like to take a women's ski clinic. I live in Boston and my sister lives in New York City, so it will have to be in New England. Also, they would prefer a 2 day class to a 3 day, if possible. My wife is a lower lever intermediate (a little timid, holds her back, sticks to blues and still likes to do greens) and my sister is a total beginner (skied a couple of times, but I believe it's in the genes so she will pick it up quick).

Any ideas of where I could find a good clinic for them? Again, 2 day clinic would be better, but I guess if push comes to shove, it could be a 3 day (not sure if I can sell that though).

I don't know about the clinics but congratulations!

I'm sure there will be several people that can help you out with the lesson/clinic info.

Mack, a few suggestions. Sunday River aand Okemo have the best women's ski programs. Price wise, Okemo is an incredible deal because it includes Breakfast, lunch, lift, overnight and day ski check. I also just found this site http://www.skilikeawoman.com
which lists women's ski programs throughout the US.

BTW, I will be doing a program called SkiReady at Healthworks Porter Square this fall.

Please feel free to have Kristen contact me, through my website, http://www.ski-fitness.net

I too, tend to be a pretty timid skier, and these workshops have helped me alot.

That site you listed doesn't open.
I've been reading and heeding Jeannie Thoren for over 20 years. There's an article about her in the new Ski Magazine(pg 134). I know she does clinics around the country. You might check if there's one in your area.
My wife, daughter, stepdaughters(100 FIS pts)and athletes have all benefitted from her advice.

after you click on the link then go up to the address bar and edit the link, remove the comma at the end.


OOPS, you need to put a space after the url otherwise our browsers put exactly what you put in your post. including all the punctuation.

Uh, Duh! Fixed it. Jeannie Thoren's site is http://www.jeanniethoren.com

She has her 2002 schedule listed, but she does not do anything in New England.<FONT size="1">

Hi Mack

I took the clinic at Sugarbush VT in Feb 2000 and had such a good time. As a result, www.skilikeawoman.com was set up.

Here's the links to 2 and 3 day clinics for women at resorts in New England. (I hope you can access the site - sorry to hear that someone had problems.)

We're currently waiting for the 2001/02 dates, but these pages will give you some idea of what's on offer. The site is regularly updated so keep checking back!

Let me know if you want any more information - and I hope they have as much fun as I did.

Hi Yvonne! Great Site!!! The link problem waS MY FAULT. I accidentally put a comma too close to where I printed the link.

I can't remember her name but there is a woman who has women ski clinics at Sugarbush, VT every year. There are one day as well as 2-3day. They are all inclusive--instruction, lift tickets, breakfast, lunch, video taping. She has them at least three times throughout the season. I bet if you call Sugarbush they would know how to contact her. Or go to the Ski Show in Nov. She is usually there.
