Babe Force: ‘Babes in the Woods’ Backcountry Camp

March 4, 2023 - March 5, 2023

Group of women backcountry skiers and riders pose with one ski in the air

The ‘Babes in the Woods’ are BACK! Started in 2020 Babes in the Backcountry camp is a two day event hosted by Bolton Babe Force. ‘Babes’ (self-identifying women and non-binary folks) who sign up and participate will get to enjoy multiple skinning tours for both skiing and splitboarding, intro to uphill/backcountry clinic, waxing and tuning demo, a yoga class, and access to the Sports Center indoor pool, sauna, and hot tub.

The group will be split into three main groups, that may split off into smaller ones during the days. The groups are based on your spiciness (ability) level:

Bell Pepper: New to Uphill and the Backcountry. Come take our intro course and learn how to venture into the woods.
Jalapeño Pepper: The group ranges from people who have gone a few times into the backcountry and feel confident on their skins to people who go regularly but prefer a moderate pace.
Ghost Pepper: These people venture into the backcountry often and like to maximize the number of runs during their time out in the wild.

For this camp, we recommend skiers and snowboarders feel comfortable skiing/riding through wooded areas, through variable conditions, and through deeper snow. We also recommend folks feel comfortable with coming to a complete stop at any point in a matter of a few seconds in multiple different terrains; whether that’s within trees, variable conditions, or deeper snow.
