All-women's ski and ride courses start in early January. They're an excellent way to improve your skills -- and improve your comfort level -- in a supportive group of women. And it's an excellent way to prepare for the season. Women enjoy the "no men allowed" classes taught by women instructors.
Most resorts have programs on 3,4,5or 6 consecutive Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays. They might have slightly
different names called: all-women's classes, lessons workshops, or sessions.
Camps, on the other hand, are held on consecutive days during the same week. Some camp packages include lodging.
