The following Women on Skis events are group skis. If a skier chooses to ski as an individual and not part of one of the WOS groups, WOS may not be able to provide any assistance to the skier. Any skier choosing to ski as an individual is requested to advise a WOS Leader and to identify to the Leader their ski buddy. Skiing alone is not recommended. If you are uncertain of which ski group is apppropriate for you , e.g. Jackrabbits, Tourers, or Birdwatchers, we suggest you talk to a Leader. Often joining a slower group can make for a more enjoyable ski.
