Verbier freeride and avalanche education for women

Women have an educational role in our society: their children will feed off their passion for free riding and the mountains. By empowering women to become more autonomous in the mountains, we create a society that in turn will be more symbiotic with their environment!

The mountains are best served with a side of empowerment so mixing fun and learning is what this clinic aims to achieve. We will discover some of the secret gems that the Verbier 4 Vallees resort holds in store for free riders all the while learning the basic of avalanche education.
