The Alpine Finishing School is an all-women's ski and snowboard mountaineering course designed to help female backcountry skiers increase their mountaineering skills. The course will take place April 19-26 at the Selkirk Backcountry Lodge. She Jumps is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to increase the participation of females in outdoor activities. The cource will teach glacier travel, companion and crevasse rescue, map/compass/GPS tour planning, snow anchors, rappelling and belaying techniques for ski applications, a general glaciology lecture, expedition snow camping training and emergency snow bivouac construction. The SheJumps Alpine Finishing School was an amazing experience because it challenged me to learn new skills and be confident in my own abilities, said pro skier Nat Segal, who took the course last year. Being surrounded by women who have the same love of skiing and goals to be in the mountains was really special and something that I hope to emulate. The course is taught by the first woman to become a fully certified IFMGA guide, Diny Harrison.
