BIG SKY RESORT

BIG SKY – Start off on the right piste this ski season at Big Sky Resort with its Women’s Early Bird Clinic and the Dan Egan Early Bird Camp.

The all-women early season clinic on Dec. 5 and 6 is taught by women and the session will focus on improving individual performance and mastering new techniques. This clinic is a building block to advancing women’s skiing from the start of the season, allowing them to gain confidence on snow as the season progresses.

“The idea of this clinic is to personalize a group lesson, provide key tips to improve your skiing throughout the season, and have fun meeting new friends who like to ski what you like to ski,” said Dashelle Purchell, Women Clinics instructor at Big Sky Resort.

Dan Egan is one of the “Top Skiers of All Time,” according to Powder magazine, and his Early Bird Camp on Dec. 14 and 15 is designed for skiers who want to learn and adapt their skills for all-terrain skiing. The camp will explore skiers’ range of balance and stance on varied terrain including groomed runs, bumps, steeps and trees.

Dan Egan’s Early Bird Camp includes two days of guiding and individualized instruction by Egan and his team of trainers, as well as video movement analysis.

“Come ski with me and learn secrets to all-terrain skiing,” Egan said. “We’ll cover the strategy and tactics for where we go and why, changing the way you’ll see the mountain. The only thing extreme is the level of fun.”

The Early Bird Camp and Women’s Early Bird Clinic are designed for intermediate and above skiers who are motivated to take their abilities to a new level. The clinics are capped at six participants per group.
