• A reasonable level of fitness.

Sue Walker aspirant all-mountain skier reports from her first Powder Chicks Week with Emma.

“On the morning of the first day we were all slightly anxious, possibly more so than had it been a mixed sex group, but by run 2 our nerves had completely subsided. We ‘gee-d’ each other on and pushed ourselves without having to be ‘Macho’ or get to the front ahead of others. We didn’t feel we were trying to impress but simply enjoyed a fabulous week’s skiing, one of our best ever! We learnt simple skills to be able to go at whatever speed we wished to, to deal with difficult conditions and learnt how to control anxiety when faced with some real challenges.

We laughed at the falls but were equally supportive of each other and Emma was constantly positive, pushing us when required. We trusted her judgment completely and followed her wherever she took us. She had an ability to make us feel like we could do anything and with the right tools, we could! We literally skied the whole mountain and grew more confident every day to go wherever Emma took us.

Learning in a ‘female’ environment was fabulous. You will laugh, joke, be challenged, be utterly inspired and literally have one of the best week’s skiing. And to top if off you will be skiing with Emma who has competed in a mixed sex environment for years at the highest level of competition and yet can deliver simple, straight forward instructions which makes skiing anywhere on the mountain so much easier.
