Backcountry Skiing and Yoga Retreat

February 15-17, 2019

 

 

The backcountry skiing and yoga retreat is an experience for a group of women to come together as friends to share inspiring moments in the White mountains.  We have found that this weekend bonds together friendships while working outside of comfort zones, finding moments of solitude and sharing a glass of wine fireside. This is a great opportunity for someone who is new to the sport of backcountry or seasoned vets.  We just ask that you are comfortable enough to ski off of groomed terrain and narrow ski/hiking trails.
