Hayoooo! Is it just in Northern NM that there seems to be an extreme lack of hardcore lady skiers, or even lady skiers at all or is that everywhere??? It gets a little lonely sometimes when there are no ladies to ski with😬 What’s the problem?!
Yeah it’s totally male dominated, which is ok I guess but it just baffles me how not very many girls at all even want to ski... seems to be changing very slowly, but changing just the same! Which is good!
I do ski alone, 99% of the time. Just got back from a month of car camping and skiing in 6 different states by myself, so got the whole skiing alone thing covered lol.
Holy cow sounds fun...Im too tied down because of work to be doing anything like that. I skied most of last season alone. I had days where I was with people and guess what.....only 4 ladies the rest were well guys..but that doesn't really bother me much. Im used to it. Ive always workes in male dominant fields. I like skiing with other women when I get a chance to so I can watch how they move. You learn alot by studying the way others similar to your body type move.
Dude same! I patrol at my area and I’m the only girl, which is totally fine, cause being honest I’d rather work with all men than all women haha! Not even exaggerating, there are about 10 local girls at my area that ski on a weekly basis, a few stragglers here and there. But only about 3 of them that actually ski like they mean it, pretty ridiculous. I don’t know what the deal is... it’s just nice to have some pals so you can push eachother 🤙🏽
It really depends on what state you live in too. If you are in a ski town you'll be more likely to find other women because they all grew up skiing. If you live somewhere like Seattle (where I used to live) you won't find many because the mountains are too far away and our snow isn't very good so it's much harder to learn, let alone get good.
This is one of the reasons I'm getting more heavily into mountain biking this season. I don't know why, but for some reason mountain biking is really drawing tons of women in. Here in SLC there are no less than 3 different women's mountain bike groups, but even in Seattle we had some very active mtb groups for women (bell joy ride and evergreen crank sisters). I just went to an event the other day that had almost 100 women show up. Plus I suck at biking compared to skiing so it's much easier to relate to all the other new people entering the sport. If there were more women I'd love to get into BMX or skateboarding or inline skating, but I hate being the only woman at the skatepark. At least mountain biking I can easily find some lady friends, even if pedaling isn't my favorite thing (trying to get more women into Downhill) it's worth it to be surrounded by other supportive women.
