She Jumps Get The Girls Out

SheJumps will be hitting the slopes for a fun day at Alyeska Resort in Girdwood, AK!

Get the Girls Out is a national campaign to unite women and girls as they support, challenge, mentor, and inspire each other in the outdoor sports world. These events are held near International Women’s Day (annually on March 8) and cultivate communities for women to have fun and connect with friends – new and old. GTGO events create opportunities for women to share & inspire and ensures younger generations have the opportunity to storm mountains and develop the life skills necessary to succeed on the mountains and in life!

Cost: Free! While this is a free event at the resort, participants are responsible for their own lift ticket. Early registration gets you one free raffle ticket. Additional raffle tickets can be purchased during registration at the event.

Lift Tickets: Please be sure to purchase lift tickets through Alyeska Resort. Lift tickets are not included in event registration.

Days activities: Group meet up, group skiing, mountain & base area activities, RAFFLE – win a pair of K2 Skis and other raffle prizes from Pit Viper, Stio, Powder Hound, Skhoop, Skinny Raven and more!

Event Schedule:

  • 10:00 AM – Event Check in & Registration
  • 10:30 AM – Group Ski & Ride Session
  • 2:30 PM – Raffle

All day activities include: Helmet TuTu making, Golden Girafficorn Scavenger Hunt, Demos from Powder Hound, plus lots of prizes and goodies! Stop by the tent to learn more!

All activities will start at the SheJumps tent in front of the Day Lodge at Alyeska Resort!

What to wear: The ideal clothing allows for unrestricted movement and comfort while skiing. Dress in layers to allow you to quickly and easily regulate your temperature. Modern, breathable fabrics such as polyester, nylon or wool blends breathe well and don’t absorb sweat. Avoid cotton as it will keep you cold once it gets wet. Make sure to wear or bring clothing that will protect you from the elements: a cold wind or wet snow can quickly chill an unprepared skier.

*Feel free to bring your inner Girafficorn and wear colorful, silly, and unique attire. Costumes are encouraged! Do you have some amazing leggings and a tutu? A stellar onesie? Vintage ski gear? A fun wig? Throw it on!*

We welcome all women and girls (transgender and cisgender) as well as non-binary people. All minors (under age 18) must be supervised by a parent or guardian for the full event.

While on the slopes, you will see people using alpine skis, telemark skis, snowboards, and other snow play equipment such as snow skates, snow bikes and adaptive ski gear. You will see skiers of all levels – from beginners enjoying their first day on the slopes to expert skiers with years of experience. It is always your responsibility, regardless of the equipment used or the level of skier that you are, to be courteous to others and to be aware that skiing safely makes the ski slopes safer for all of us.

Alyeska is a large mountain with difficult and dangerous terrain and skiing and riding are dangerous sports.  We do our best to inform guests of the possible hazards associated with snow sports. We do our best to mark hazards and dangerous terrain appropriately. We also actively open and close certain areas of the mountain often due to Snow Safety considerations, ski conditions, or darkness

Our beginner ski zones and high skier traffic areas are important to us and we refer to these areas as “Slow” zones. We label them as such on our trail maps and with signs and banners as you ski through each of these areas. We encourage guests to ‘Go with the Flow’ in these areas, ski only as fast as the skier next to you. Our least favorite part of the job is to be the police on the mountain. We do our best to keep an eye on people skiing around to ensure everyone is skiing safely and within their limits.

Alyeska has set Enforcement Guidelines based on the Skier Responsibility Code and Mountain Safety Concerns for behavior on the mountain. When an individual crosses these lines, we have to step in and be the police, and we have no tolerance for unsafe behavior at Alyeska. We have a relationship with the Department of Natural Resources and due to this relationship we issue DNR citations to individuals in violations of certain rules. In addition to loss of lift privileges and fines we also require all ‘violators’ to take the Mountain Education Test, a tool used to help educate.
