It is a stereotype, but it rings true in so many cases. The glue of many ski families is the mom, whose job it is to organize the gear, pack up the kids and food, entertain during the car ride and get everyone delivered to their destinations…on time. These moms need to be congratulated for creating thousands of new skiers and riders every year. But sometimes moms need attention too. That’s just what Lisa Densmore’s “Your Turn” Clinic is all about. This two day clinic is a time for women to put aside their work and family duties and just enjoy the company of other women on and off the snow.
Holiday Valley Snowsports School is featuring the third annual “Your Turn” women’s clinic on Thursday and Friday, Feb.12 and 13. The clinic is led by Lisa Densmore, a widely acclaimed coach, instructor and ski racer and assisted by several of Holiday Valley’s finest women instructors. Intermediate through advanced level skiers (women who can comfortably ski blues, some black diamonds) will benefit from this clinic. Each day Lisa will address different topics that women skiers need to know, like the how and why of ski equipment and proper boot fitting. There’s plenty of skiing with Lisa and Holiday Valley Instructors, video analysis of each participant, demo equipment and door prizes!
Lisa has a special talent of sharing her extensive knowledge of ski equipment and ski mechanics in a way that is very informative and logical, yet non-intimidating. Her racing background on the US Ski Team, Women’s Pro Tour and Masters Racing plus her experience in ski coaching, writing and consulting qualify her as an expert, yet her style is very personal and nurturing. Over 6,000 women have had breakthroughs in their skiing while taking Lisa’s clinics.
The cost of the clinic is $290 and includes two days of coaching with video analysis of each participant, demo equipment, advice on ski and boot selection, breakfast and lunch each day plus dinner on Thursday. Specially priced lift tickets are available. A special rate for lodging is available at the Inn at Holiday Valley for Wednesday and Thursday nights. To reserve call 800-323-0020.
