Women’s Backcountry Weekend: Female only (sorry dudes) backcountry ski and splitboard weekend at Manitoba Hut

Alaska Huts and SheJumps are excited to host the first ever Ladies Only Ski Weekend at Manitoba! We are stoked for an excuse to celebrate awesome women and Alaskan winter at its best: fully supported by a warm cabin.

The goal of Women’s Backcountry Ski Weekend is to promote camaraderie, community, and support amongst female skiers and winter sports enthusiasts in the South Central Alaska area by bringing them together at Manitoba cabin for a weekend of stoke, skiing, snowboarding, and fun. Alaska Huts Association partnered with SheJumps to make this event happen! Special thanks to Coalition Snow and Powderhound Ski Shop for their support. The weekend includes a day of skiing, avalanche beacon practice, and raffle, ski movie, and sauna fun.
