Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing the stories of our 2017/2018 scholarship recipients and their experiences within our scholarship program. First up is Katie Everson, a recipient of our "Facing Your Fears" scholarship.
Our team met in Anchorage, AK. We had 2 prep days there and then drove to Talkeetna, AK to catch the ski plane which flew us to the base of the Pika Glacier.
The Women’s Elevate camp was the perfect setting to get my mojo back. Learning the tricks (techniques, safety, endurance, terrain selection, etc.) to master this challenging mountain allowed all my hard work to pay off, and I fell in love with skiing all over again.
Skiing was the commonality that brought us ladies together. A bit of dedication, a desire for an out-of-town adventure, and a willingness to explore the space outside our comfort zones are what led us to our trip.
