SheCan -Event is full


BC Adaptive Snowsports is committed to increasing gender equity and inclusion and we are very excited to host our 2nd Annual SheCan Lead event.

BC Adaptive Snowsports presents: SheCan 2020

SheCan is a skiing and snowboarding event designed for female CADS Instructors and program leads to increase skills and confidence on and off the snow.

The 2020 theme is Building Connection. Deepen your connection with yourself, your purpose, snow sports and with your peers. Through a supportive environment, join like-minded women to reflect on your impact in your community and those around you.

This integrated weekend will stretch your on-snow skills while we work together to explore how to overcome challenges on and off the hill as women leading in adaptive snow sports. This weekend will weave together relationship building, facilitated reflection and conversations, and on-snow skill development and play.

On the snow, we will be guided by CSIA Level 4 female instructors and elite coaches. Sheila Bouman, an experienced executive coach and leader, will guide our off-snow conversations. Jessica Vliegenthart is our special keynote speaker on Friday night where she will share her experience to help kick-off the event!
