How it all started

I’m a passionate, experienced and adventurous outdoors girl – with a love of mountains, skiing and alpine sports. As a result, I’m in my element outdoors and exploring - as well as being active and testing my boundaries, whilst appreciating the beauty and immensity of the mountains. Playing in the Alps also means gaining insights into new cultures - from encounters with local traditions, sampling delicious local cuisine to connecting with like-minded people from all over the world, drawn together in search of similar adventures, be it snow-shoeing through the backwaters of the Vorarlberg, or biking through the apple orchards of the South Tyrol.

In recent years, I’ve become a port-of-call for friends wanting to get more out of a mountain holiday – whether that’s finding a great instructor, getting off the beaten track or seeking a more genuine alpine experience. The deciding moment for creating this business came whilst searching in vain for good ski information for women and I ended up crying out “girls ski too!!” in frustration. As an entrepreneur with extensive experience in tailor-making summer outdoor activities and team-building retreats, I saw a window of opportunity to transfer my enthusiasm, expertise and extensive local knowledge and network to create a female-friendly ski and alpine sports environment through GirlsSki2.

Having spent a significant amount of time in the mountains over the last 12 years- for both work and play- my highlights have been bringing women’s groups together in this wonderful alpine environment and seeing the transformation that can take place in just a few days. It’s not only a LOT of fun being away with a group of like-minded girls, but the atmosphere is supportive, empowering and exhilarating. It’s where women break through personal barriers, find the self-belief to make positive lifestyle changes and form friendships that last a lifetime.
