What we're about

We are a group of diverse skiers and riders active in cross country, telemark, alpine, and/or snowboarding based out of Boston area. Our leaders run both backcountry and resort trips in White and Green mountains. We are organized under the Appalachia Mountain Club (AMC), which is a large collection of small groups like ours. AMC offers a structure for leadership training, peer-approved leaders, and workshops taught by volunteer instructors to help others improve their skills and participate at a higher level. Our trips are open to everyone based on ability, although participants in backcountry trips are usually screened to insure they don’t end up somewhere they don’t belong. (New England backcountry can be variable). We are NOT a young singles group, retirees on skis, or Men on a Mission. We are diverse in the style and ability of our trips and the ethnicity and age of our members. We are serious about skiing with competent leadership, but loose enough to have fun on the way. So be adventurous! Check us out and be part of our fun.

It is very important to read the full trip descriptions first, not just the trip titles, before RSVPing. Thank you.

AMC x SheJumps Women's-specific Uphill Skiing & Riding Weekend in VT

Needs a location

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS AN OFFICIAL AMC AND SHEJUMPS TRIP AND YOU MUST REGISTER USING THE LINK BELOW TO PARTICIPATE.

SIGN UP HERE: https://activities.outdoors.org/search/index.cfm/action/details/id/142145

Join SheJumps and AMC Boston for a women's-specific weekend of uphill skiing and riding at Bolton Valley! The weekend will include frontcountry and backcountry portions and will be perfect for intermediate or advanced skiers and riders who have some prior experience with uphill travel. Participants have the option to register for one or both days.

On Saturday, SheJumps will host a day of frontcountry, with on-piste uphill laps on designated uphill trails, descending on the resort's alpine trails (must be able to ski blue trails). If you're newer to uphill travel or out of practice, this will be a great warm up/fitness day! Everyone can feel free to take a lunch break on their own, and if health and safety conditions allow, we'll end the day with an après gathering including a raffle.

Sunday will provide a bit more adventure, with the AMC leading a group into Bolton Valley's extensive backcountry terrain. With over 12,000 acres of untouched wilderness adjacent to the resort's alpine trails, the group will have many options to choose from - from mellow glades to narrow chutes and moderate cliff zones - and will navigate together based on group ability and preferences. The group size will be more limited on Sunday. Participants will be required to have meaningful backcountry experience in order to join, along with the ability to ski ungroomed black diamond terrain. Be prepared to spend the day in the backcountry and bring appropriate food, water, layers, personal first aid, and personal gear repair kits. Though this event will not focus on teaching skills, it should help participants practice travel uphill and navigate into the backcountry with confidence, all while making safe group decisions, exploring, and finding and riding as much vertical as possible.

An uphill day ticket is required each day. Participants should purchase their tickets ahead of time online (https://www.boltonvalley.com/winter/tickets-passes/nordic-backcountry-uphill-passes/) or at the ticket window, and be prepared and ready with ticket in-hand at the designated meeting time each morning. The cost of each day ticket is $25.

Bolton Valley has uphill rental equipment available, on a first-come-first-served basis. Visit their site for more information: https://www.boltonvalley.com/winter/rentals-leases-tuning/backcountry-rentals/

All participants will need to sign SheJumps and AMC liability waivers.

YOU MUST SIGN UP FOR THIS EVENT THROUGH THE ABOVE LINK. REPLYING TO MEETUP THAT YOU'RE ATTENDING DOESN'T WORK.
