Big Mountain Jump Skills with Travis Senkow

  • Spring mornings may be a little 'firm' for riding but don't let that time go to waste. We'll be offering the opportunity for riders to brush up on your technical backcountry rescue skills by offering a CRS course (3 hours each morning before riding). 

Mountain Mentorship / Follow Me Guided Days

  • Enhance your terrain assessment and mountain travel skills by following one of our professional guides for a day of riding. 



$1000 per person

Elk Valley Snow Shepherds could not be more stoked to announce we have partnered with Pro-rider and Clinician Stephanie Schwartz to offer a full weekend of coaching and skills development in Fernie, BC this winter.

This ladies-only clinic includes: 

  • Private access to our host local backcountry lodge and stunning terrain, currated especially for each days skills development workshops.
  • Breakfast, lunch, and dinner to keep you fuelled.
  • Local, female sled guides to back you up throughout the day when you need
  • And of course, Stephanie's expert coaching skills

Saturday will focus on fundamental intermediate riding skills and sled set up to improve confidence and ability including sled adjustments for women riders, basic avalanche safety, body positioning, throttle control, getting your sled on edge, and maneuvering your sled with less effort.

Sunday will be geared towards pushing personal boundaries with advanced riding and technical skills development such as downhill carving, tree riding, sidehilling, and more!

Ladies - we can hear you already:

 "Am I a good enough rider for this... I don't want to slow anyone down... I don't want to look stupid".

Here is your opportunity to loose the mindset that is holding you back - this clinic is made for you. So write yourself that permission slip and lets get to work out there! 

"I know the clients get nervous, heck I still get nervous before I ride after all these years but it's a great kind of nervousness. Just know that we are all there for each other. You will soon come to realize this clinic will help you get out of your comfort zones and learn lots of new skills. You'll have a big ball of fun and come out with sore cheeks from laughing and smiling" - Stephanie Schwartz
