Sorry, this is for women only . . . four days of catered skiing.
Intended, says founder of the K2 Women's Ski Adventure, Kim Reichhelm, to make women better skiers . . . more like men.Reichhelm, a five-year member of the U.S. Ski Team, points out that men tend to be more aggressive on the ski slopes . . . "While women are more tentative, afraid of getting hurt and intimidated by the unfamiliar."
Her four-day college-of-better-skiing will begin next Thursday at Snowbird. Included in the course of studies will be everything from looking better on skis, to skiing better, to taking racing gates.
"Ladies who join us have desire and enthusiasm to improve their skiing skill and overall knowledge of the sport," she says.
When she's not instructing, Reichhelm is a sports model, makes occasional appearances on TV talk shows, does commentary on ski racing broadcasts, and was featured as an extreme skier in the production, "License To Thrill."
Included in the package are accommodations, if needed at the Cliff Lodge, breakfasts, lunches and welcome an awards dinner, lift tickets, skiing clinics with video analysis, product demos, fashion show, fun races, awards and get-togethers.
For information call 1-800-453-3000. The session is limited to 40 - ladies only.
