Throughout the day you can take part in activities such as a No Man’s Land Film Festival, an all women’s ski/snowboard clinic, Mother-Daughter Aprés and more.

The No Man’s Land Film Festival is an all-women adventure film festival based out of Carbondale, Colorado that travels around the US to showcase all of the amazing feats that female athletes have taken on and give them some recognition for their achievements along with some inspiration for the next generation.

If you are in it for the ski lift tickets, the Ski & Ride Clinic for ladies features a tour of Copper Mountain with two ski and ride clinics led by the Copper Mountain Ski & Ride School for only $75.

Each of the events is focused on educating women on outdoor winter sports, adventures and giving back to the surrounding communities.

“At SOS Outreach, we gear kids up for life by introducing youth who are at-risk to the sports of skiing and snowboarding, positive adult mentors, service learning and leadership development. We can’t wait to include some of our female participants and volunteers in the Ladies’ Snow Day to further support their understanding of leadership, our industry, and the importance of diversifying our sport,” said Joan Dieter the Colorado regional director for SOS Outreach.
