Testimonials by Previous Scholarship Winners:
"The course offered some really incredible tips about how run beacon checks and voice concerns during a ski tour without looking like the world’s lamest skier – something so valuable that no one else is teaching.” - Amelia Richmond
"I am so thankful for the shift in perspective that I gained from the clinic, the role models I met who taught the course and the training on how to use our beacon, shovel and probe. The women who teach this course are incredible. They allowed us to have an environment free of judgement, full of inspired and heart-wrenching stories and so many educational facts on avalanche safety. It was an amazing, informational and eye-opening clinic that I will never forget!" - Katie Wurdack
"The SAFE AS clinic was one of the coolest, most memorable experiences I've had in my skiing life! Not only did I get to meet and learn from a handful of my heroes, I met so many other awesome ladies that I'll be friends with for years to come!" - Jess Cowan
