Women’s Ice Weekend
Led by IMCS guide Jeni Calzaretta, Women’s Ice Weekend is a unique chance to dive into the sport of ice climbing with other women in a small group setting, providing for personalized instruction and camaraderie.
What you will learn
This weekend is specifically for female climbers to be together and get after it. Learn finesse from the best! We will focus on technique, technical skills, and managing terrain and conditions.
While beginner ice climbers are welcome, some experience belaying (gym or crag) is helpful as we will not dedicate time to learning how to belay.
We will meet both days at the Lodge for yoga, breakfast, and gear outfitting / check. Once the small group is set, we’ll make our way to the ice!
