Women's downhill weekend scheduled

Posted: Thursday, February 07, 2002

JUNEAU - A two-day skiing workshop for woman of all abilities is planned for Feb. 16-17 at Eaglecrest.

The Women's Yes You Can Weekend begins Feb. 16 at 8:30 a.m. with a continental breakfast and continues that day until about 4:30 p.m. A similar schedule follows on the 17th.

Barb Lindh of the Eaglecrest Ski School said the weekend's theme is versatility on the slopes. "It's really an opportunity to get in a groove and have concentrated instruction that's real supportive," she said.

The fee - $120 for season-pass holders, $156 with lift tickets - includes breakfast and lunch, on-the-slopes instruction in groups based on ability, a yoga mini-workshop with Linda Buckley and guest speaker Karlynn Welling talking about sports nutrition.

For the first time, beginners are part of the weekend. Advanced skiers who want to try out high-performance skis can rent them for $23 a day.

Sponsors are the Nugget Alaskan Outfitters and Sysco Foods. Call 790-2001 for details.
