Women’s Virtual Summit

Make plans now to attend the Women’s Virtual Summit, which features a kickoff keynote with Jessica Baker, mother, heli-guide, PSIA-AAS National Team contender, and founder of Ski Divas LLC. This Virtual Summit virtually brings together women from across PSIA-AASI divisions, different disciplines, and professional snowsports associations for online learning and networking. Please note that this event contains sessions held on three days, with virtual events being offered on Wednesday evenings from 6 to 7:30 p.m. MT on Jan. 26, Feb. 2, and Feb. 9. Attend every session to earn four (4) CEUs.

Also, the Women’s Virtual Summit serves as a kick-starter event to the on-snow Women’s Summit that takes place in person on Sunday, Feb. 27 through Wednesday, Mar. 2 in Stowe, Vermont. These are two separate events. However, if you’d like to take a deeper dive into the topics discussed at the Virtual Summit, make plans to attend the in-person event in February, too! The theme of “balance” and session topics dovetail between the virtual and in-person events.

Balancing it All
Speaker: Jessica Baker
Time: 6 – 7:30 p.m. MT
Description: Join Jessica Baker as she describes her personal tale of finding balance between her professional endeavors, her family, and her well-being. Come as an active participant or just come to listen.

Women Belong on the Mountain: A Deep Dive into Mentorship and Training
Speaker: Women’s Advisory Group Members lead by Carol Levine
Time: 6 – 7:30 p.m. MT
Description: In 2019, the Women’s Advisory Group created a report about the experiences of women in snowsports. From that report, there emerged 6 key findings. This session focuses on two of the most pervasive key findings: mentorship and traits of trainers. You’ll have an opportunity to listen to a more in-depth explanation of these two key findings, and an opportunity to discuss and digest the information in smaller groups. The small groups will include a 3-part exploration of each finding: 1. What are the facts that were found for each of the findings? 2. An open discussion about thoughts and feelings pertaining to those facts. 3. Bullet points of key takeaways of what to do now that the facts have been uncovered.

Mindfulness in Snowsports
Speaker: Suzy Chase-Motzkin
Time: 6 – 7:30 p.m. MT
Description: In this session Suzy will share decades of study and practice in the art of self-healing, well-being, and coaching performance. Learn how to successfully implement the power of visualization, manipulation of energy, and focused intention on the hill. This webinar will explore the use of meditation, visualization, attention, intention, and the power of language to create positive outcomes.

Women in Leadership Panel
Speaker: Kathy Brennan
Time: 6 – 7:30 p.m. MT
Description: This session will feature a panel of women leaders within the snowsports industry, who will answer questions and give advice on how you can advance into managerial or leadership roles with particular emphasis on unconventional pathways.

Wellness and Mental Health: Finding Balance and Healing
Speaker: Stacy Smith
Time: 6 – 7:30 p.m. MT

Pitfalls and Potentials: The Art of Giving and Receiving Effective Feedback
Speaker: Maggie Loring
Time: 6 – 7:30 p.m. MT
Description: In this session, you’ll learn the value of effective feedback, and the tools needed to give effective feedback.
