SheJumps to host ski patrol day for Park City female youth
The nonprofit SheJumps is partnering with Park City Mountain Resort on Sunday to bring its Wild Skills Junior Ski Patrol day to girls in Park City. The girls who participate will learn mountain safety and first aid with female ski patrollers, said Courtney Kizer, an ambassador for SheJumps. Girls ages 8 to 16 who are intermediate-level skiers are invited to attend. Girls will be divided into three groups and will meet at the end of the ski day for a giveaway. The program costs $35 for those with a PCMR pass or $60 for those who do not, but scholarship funds are available. Registration is available online on the event’s Facebook page. The deadline to register is Friday at 9 a.m.
