After visiting Mt. Olympus various times over the past few years, I wanted to share what I had found up there with some amazing women, and link your minds together……an idea exchange of sorts.
Winter is short in New Zealand and many great intentions at the start of the season are often had with adventures in mind, but sometimes it’s difficult to get out town, arrange time off work with others, and actually do it. So I thought if I organise a weekend in advance, you can all arrange time off work, baby-sitters/partners/dog-sitters and just do it.
This is the flexible part of the weekend that I will facilitate and organise but I’m relying on you to step up in your area of expertise/ passion/ interest and pass on the knowledge and skills.
Some of the thoughts so far the weekend
- instruction/ technique/ skills
- back-country awareness/ transceivers searches
- touring skills
- healthy living and eating
- photography workshop
- creative workshops
- relaxing and rejuvenating
- networking and meeting potential adventure/ project/ business connections
- demo new skis
- non-skiing snow activities
- drinking, dinner and dancing
- lots of skiing
and anything else you can think of…………….
The event will be supported by various sponsors in many shapes and forms. I will post them here as the offers come flying in! And in turn we will be supporting Aspiring Avalanche Dogs. The proceeds from raffle/auction and a portion of the registration fee will go to them.
