Intro to Sled Shredding


Why join a women’s only sled camp?

Stay Wild believes in the magic of women coming together and supporting one another. Sledding is still a heavily male-dominated sport. As a female-run business whose staff is 90% women, our instructors have often had the experience of being the only woman on the mountain or in the training class. Maybe you can relate?

If you’re tired of being the token female in your shred crew, consider joining one of our women’s only sled camps. We intentionally keep these classes small and create opportunities for hands-on learning and thoughtful Q-and-A sessions.

You’ll leave these ladies sled camps with the confidence & skills to lead your shred crew in the backcountry.


PLUS, you’ll meet a bunch of other rad women who share your love for the mountains.
