DISCOVERY SKI AREA- This January 22nd and 23rd, pro skier Lisa Densmore Ballard returns to Discovery ski area to host “Your Turn,” a women’s only ski clinic, for the second year in a row. Participants can expect a full day of instruction and analysis by Lisa and her instructors. This includes individual on snow clinics and video review for each skier.

It’s not all work though! The day starts with continental breakfast, a ski demo paired with instruction, lunch falls in the middle, and finally the après-ski party! Expect food, fun, and prizes to go along with a full day of learning.

The clinic is limited to the first 64 women to sign up (32 per day) at The cost is just $30 for the clinic. The lift ticket to Discovery Ski Area is extra. Season pass holders need only pay for the clinic. Due to the popularity of this event participants may sign up for either the 22nd or 23rd, but not both. The 2014 clinic sold out immediately so it is recommended that interested parties visit as soon as possible.
