Wild Skills Berkshire East Recap

Forty girls ages six to twelve arrived to Berkshire East on the perfect summer day for the first Northeast Wild Skills event. Berkshire East has been an amazing partner for many SheJumps events and their amazing donation of space made this event possible.

As the girls arrived they split into three teams based on age. The girls played introduction games before we had a group yoga session. It was the perfect way to start the morning before the groups went off to the three skills stations. The stations were shelter building, first aid and navigation.

Each of the stations were set up to provide the girls with basic skills. The shelter building station had the girls work as a team to create a place to stay with tarps and trash bags. Using items, you would have with you or could find in the woods to help make the supports the girls created amazing shelters.

The navigation station taught the girls how to use and read a compass and how to read a topo map. The girls then set off on a scavenger hunt using their new skills.

img_0721

At the first aid station the girls learned what to do in case of an emergency and basic first aid that they could provide using a small first aid kit that most carry while out on adventures. They practiced these skills by taking turns having half the group be injured and the other half finding the injured girl and providing help and first aid.

This event would not have been possible if it was not for the 30 volunteers that came out to help. The volunteers lead the groups and the skills stations and provided the girls with a day full of fun, learning and confidence building! Thank you volunteers and thank you Berkshire East!

SheJumps Skydive First Jump Course – Recap

On a sunny day in July, 6 ladies got together to literally take a jump – out of a plane!

skydive_1

After a session on land with awesome women instructors from Skydive Kapowsin and learning proper skills to safely jump out of a plane, the group headed up into the sky. What an exciting and unique way to try sky diving – I myself was not part of the event and did do the jump, but I was so impressed by the ladies that did the jump solo. Way to go!!!

Everyone loved sharing the sky with a great group of women!

Big thanks to Skydive Kapowsin and Rachel Delacour for making this happen!

SheJumps Into SUP Yoga Along The Ruston Way In Tacoma – 2017 Recap

This summer two SUP yoga events were hosted in Tacoma. We had beautiful sunny days to enjoy the water and the fantastic views of Commencement Bay. In both classes some women tried paddle boarding and/or yoga for the first time. Everyone had positive and enthusiastic attitudes, in typical SheJumps fashion! This resulted in fun classes and each of us challenging ourselves.

tacomasup2017_1

The classes provided a mix of challenge and relaxation. Our dedicated instructor, Lindsay Lambert, aka the Paddling Yogini, reminded us to receive the energy from the water (yes, waves and all) with our inhalations and to release any thoughts or distress on our exhalations. Lindsay teaches classes year round, and you might try an indoor yoga or TRX class sometime. Those of us needing to rent paddle boards were outfitted by Dolan Board Sports.

tacomasup2017_3

Commencement Bay is a beautiful place to explore. I hope you can join us next summer for SUP yoga or for paddle boarding.

RECAP: SheJumps Downhill Day at Massanutten Bike Park

Article by Kelly Drewnowski, Southeast Region Director

It was a beautiful summer-like September morning when 10 brave women from the Southeast met at Massanutten Resort in Virginia to embark on a thrilling day of downhill mountain biking.

Southeast Downhill Day 2

As the ladies were fitted for bikes, helmets, and pads, they received swag bags loaded with sunscreen, lip balm, coffee, wipes, and more, all donated by our great local and national partners.

Southeast Downhill Day 3

The intimate group quickly became aquatinted and was ready to roll out and start the downhill lesson.

Southeast Downhill Day 4

Once on the hill, Scott and Chad, downhill coaches for the resort, shared their knowledge while explaining proper body positioning, gearing, and disc brake usage. The experience levels of the group, representing four decades of ages, varied in from never-ever to advanced intermediate. Thanks to the great coaching, all were able to gather lots of pointers for their bag of tricks.

Southeast Downhill Day 5

After a few demonstrations, the ladies split into two smaller groups as the coaches helped participants practice several drills to refine their stance and braking on the forgiving grass ski slopes.

Southeast Downhill Day 6

Finally it was time to take this newfound knowledge to the trails! After learning to load the bikes on the lift, which was no easy task, the ladies made their way up to the top of the beginner trails, thankful for the help of friendly lift attendants.

Southeast Downhill Day 7

The ladies cheered each other on all day…

Southeast Downhill Day 8

even when riding down the lift ramp! As with any new sport, each accomplishment is to be celebrated.

Southeast Downhill Day

Once out on the trails the coaching continued as Chad and Scott stopped their groups periodically to give demos and more pointers.

Southeast Downhill Day

SheJumps provides the perfect supportive learning environment for women of all abilities.

Southeast Downhill DayEveryone was proud of each lesson learned as they went from newbies to being comfortable on the varying terrain and trails.

Southeast Downhill Day

While stopping to learn a new skill participants could be seen taking in the beauty of the mountain and all it has to offer.  Massanuten, in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, not only has an excellent bike park, but is a breathtaking setting for getting outside.

Southeast Downhill Day

Even the full face helmets couldn’t hide the smiles of each jumper as they stopped to regroup on the side of the trail. Everywhere you looked ladies were grinning under their gear!

Southeast Downhill Day

As the ladies became more comfortable they moved on to trails of greater difficulty. Everyone made it through all of the lower trails and by the end of the day some even went up the advanced lift!

Southeast Downhill Day

After a quick lunch outside on the lodge deck everyone was eager to get back on the trails. Several of the ladies headed up to the advanced lift for more of a challenge, while a few stayed down low to refine their new skills.

Southeast Downhill Day

This crew drove over 3 hours to spend the day riding together and was excited to head up to more difficult terrain.

Southeast Downhill Day

Once at the top everyone realized things were going to be a lot more challenging…Jump Skills Required wasn’t exactly what they had in mind…

Southeast Downhill Day

but it ended up being a blast!

Southeast Downhill Day

As the difficulty greatly increased, so did the height of the berms, which helped teach how to bank turns.

Southeast Downhill Day

The best part of the day was seeing the constant smiles as everyone was truly having a blast with the wind in their hair and the dirt under their fat tires!

After almost 6 hours of riding it was time to call it a day, turn in the rental gear and gather at Base Camp on the ski lodge deck to rehydrate and support SheJumps with a raffle.

Southeast Downhill Day

The raffle prizes, including plenty of women’s bike attire, were a huge hit and everyone happily took home a raffle prize and some even scored new SheJumps Girafficorn gear!

Southeast Downhill Day

For several of the participants this was their first SheJumps event, but hopefully not their last. They plan to join us this winter for our annual Get the Girls Out at the Nut ski day and mentioned they’d love another downhill day!

Southeast Downhill Day

The Southeast Jumpers representing with pride in the new Girafficorn bike jerseys by DaKine, hot of the presses! Get yours here before the sell out in the online store.

Southeast Downhill Day

We’d like to give a big thanks to the staff of Massanutten Bike Park for helping SheJumps put on this thrilling Outdoor Education event. We’d also like to thank the crew at Base Camp for feeding the hungry riders at the end of the day!  And thank you to our national partners EcoLips, Treeline Coffee RoastersEssential Wipes, SunSkiCoolaMountain KhakisWild Rye, and Krimson Klover for all the great swag and raffle prizes!

Without each of these partners we wouldn’t be able to host such awesome events. Please support them as they have supported each of us in our endeavor to learn something new!

Southeast Downhill Day

A special thanks to all the ladies who came and tried a fun new sport with SheJumps. It was an amazing day full of stoke and we’re super appreciative of everyone supporting this awesome organization! As always it was fun to learn new skills, meet new friends and have a great time with fellow female outdoor enthusiast while spreading the word about SheJumps! We can’t wait to see each of you at future SJ events!

RECAP: DC Adventure Film Festival

Article by Sarah Boisen, Southeast Ambassador

SheJumps had a fantastic weekend partnering with the DC Adventure Film Festival in Washington, D.C. where Girafficorns passed along tips and tricks for making the most of time spent on the trail.

We covered female-specific Leave No Trace principals, and discussed best practices for reducing one’s impact when adventuring in the great outdoors. Participants had the opportunity to dig into conversation about what makes the trail experience unique for females.

Southeast Ambassador Boisen shared plenty of SheJumps stoke (and stickers)!

Ladies were able to casually discuss the dreaded question, “how the heck do I pee/poop in the woods!?”—a concern that can often deter females from getting out on the trail. We built upon the topic of basic bodily functions by tying in the importance of female hygiene in the backcountry. Participants were introduced to products like the Diva Cup and GoGirl and were informed on ways to dispose of feminine waste products in an environmentally friendly manner.

Sarah discussed Leave No Trace principles with participants to reduce backcountry impact!

Technical topics such as pack fitting/weighting and body mechanics were also covered with REI Inspired Guides on hand to assist in helping gals find the perfect gear for their next adventure. Participants were stoked to receive trail tools and essentials to add to their packs generously donated by SheJumps partners Eco Lips, Treeline Coffee Roasters, Mountain Hub, COOLA, Big Agnes, Essential Wipes and Misadventures female adventure magazine.

SheJumps is also a recent recipient of REI’s Force of Nature Fund aimed at creating more outdoor opportunities for women and girls, so we had a blast sharing with participants what this investment means for females searching for empowerment, education and community through outdoor initiatives.

Girafficorns Ana Ceci and Sarah passed along tips, tricks and of course, plenty of free goodies!

Turning your passion into your profession

Fall is a great time of year to reflect on your career goals. Camber Outdoors recently launched their new career site which connects women to careers in the outdoor industry. It’s exciting to see so many companies taking their CEO pledge to help expand women’s opportunities both in the backcountry and the boardroom. We took some time to chat with a few ladies on our SheJumps team of volunteers who also work in the outdoor industry to share more on their career paths. Looking for a new job? Check out Camber’s new platform.

Megan Davin. Salt Lake City. Utah Ambassador.

megan-davin-headshot

How long you’ve been part of SheJumps? Currently, I am a Utah Ambassador, but I began with SheJumps back in 2012, and have done a little bit of everything. I began as an online-volunteer for SheJumps writing countless blogs. And I created and attended many events while serving as the Northeast Regional Coordinator. I love every aspect and am a huge supporter!

How did you first get into the outdoors? I grew up at the ocean and playing in the woods, but would have never considered myself as outdoorsy. That transitioned to going to college in Vermont where I first went camping and really got into hiking, sea kayaking, skiing, and eventually mountain biking. College was the crucial point for me that snowballed into not only a lifelong passion, but also my career.

What is your outdoor passion? My passions are mountain biking, alpine skiing, ski touring, and hiking. I’ve dabbled in a little bit of everything but my current seasonal cycles are mountain bike – hike – camp – ski all winter long! I can’t get enough of everything, so I will keep it up until I get bored, or try something new.

What is your current role and company? I am a Customer Account Manager at Backcountry, also known as an Expert Gearhead. I work with and manage a book of around 2,500 people, assisting with everything from gear advice to sales and customer service.

How did you turn your passion into your profession? Persistence. Every time someone has told me I can’t do something, it lights an extra fire under me to keep going and never give up or give in. Rather, it just gives me inspiration to get creative.

What advice do you have for other women who want to get into the Outdoor Industry? Don’t give up. Find like-minded friends, or a mentor, and have someone to talk with who understands you and wants to genuinely see you succeed.

Shari Karber. Bellingham. Washington Ambassador.

shari-karber-headshot

How long you’ve been part of SheJumps? I’ve been a SheJumps Pacific Coast Ambassador in Bellingham, WA for 4 months and a SheJumps follower / attendee for 3 years.

How did you first get into the outdoors? I grew up in the country and loved getting outside, but it wasn’t until college when I stopped staring at the mountains and bought gear to start backpacking.

What is your outdoor passion? In the summer, I love backpacking and spending multiple days up in the high country. In the winter I love snowshoeing – both blend into Spring / Fall activities too!

What is your current role and company? I am a Sales Coordinator for Superfeet Worldwide, a 100% employee owned premium insole company that is best known for putting shape under your feet for every adventure through over the counter insoles and footwear. My focus is in Internet Sales and International Sales, I do everything from managing our brand image on Amazon to processing orders from all over the world. I love the variety and there is never a dull moment!

How did you turn your passion into your profession? I started wearing Superfeet insoles about 7 years ago while working in the hospitality industry; Superfeet was actually a client of mine. I knew a lot about the company, the products, the culture, the values, and eventually through the relationships I had built, along with great timing – I joined the Superfeet team!

What advice do you have for other women who want to get into the Outdoor Industry? If you want to get in the outdoor industry, my advice is to build genuine relationships, find a company that’s values reflect your own, and simply GO FOR IT! If you’re a good fit and you live and breathe the company’s core values, you will get the job in a heartbeat!

Steph Bennett. Winthrop. Washington Ambassador.

steph-bennet-headshot

How long have you been part of SheJumps? I’ve been a Pacific Northwest Ambassador for 2 months, and have been a SheJumps advocate for 4+ years.

How did you first get into the outdoors? I totally lucked out growing up. We have a family cabin in the Adirondacks, where we were always out canoeing, hiking, swimming, fishing, building trails, and exploring.

What is your outdoor passion? Winters are spent splitboarding, and all other moments are spent either trail running or plotting my next adventure.

What is your current role and company? My current role is working for a small apparel/outerwear start-up called MtnLogic, which requires wearing multiple hats. My technical title is Supply Chain & Planning Director, but one day I may be working as a sales manager and the next climbing Rainier for a marketing shoot.

How did you turn your passion into your profession? I remember sitting in class during college and writing a list of all of the companies I wanted to work for when I graduated. I would go online every day and scour the job pages at Burton, K2, Kelty, Columbia, Patagonia, The North Face, etc. I realized early on that it was incredibly important for me to work for a company that made products that I use to get outside, explore and make me smile. Right after graduating, I took an unpaid internship with Burton Snowboards, and the rest is history.

What advice do you have for other women who want to get into the Outdoor Industry? Network, network, network. If there is a company you want to work for, reach out to their HR department and see if you can talk to someone about what it’s like to work there. Then, if you happen to see a job posted at that company in the future, you already have a connection when you submit your resume.

Mallory Ottariano. Missoula. Montana Regional Coordinator.

mallory-ottariano

How long have you been part of SheJumps? I’ve been the Montana Regional Coordinator for just over a year and first got  involved with SheJumps when I attended Alpine Finishing School in 2015.

How did you first get into the outdoors? I grew up in New England, which is so rich with wonderful places to recreate, and my family is really active in the outdoors. Being outside has been a part of my my identity since before I can remember, and my best memories of childhood have to do with the incredible outdoor activities my family exposed me to.

What is your outdoor passion? Anything that gets me outside and moving my body! I love ski touring, mountain biking, and hiking, but this year I took up some new activities too – trail running and skate skiing. Even a gentle walk with my dog after work is at the top of my list.

What is your current role and company? In 2015 I founded Kind Apparel, a women’s adventure clothing company. It’s a small operation and I’m responsible for a lot of tasks. We do all our designing and production in our studio in Montana, so a lot of my time is spent behind a sewing machine. But product testing is always a good time. We make all sorts of apparel for active women: skorts, swimwear, dresses, and ski headwear; and all our fabrics are made from recycled materials. I create all the graphics for our fabric, so we’re kind to the planet, and one-of-a-kind.

How did you turn your passion into your profession? I studied design in college and have been a lifelong artist, so when I graduated I started selling some of my work on Etsy. After a few years of growing online, I branded my work a bit differently and started making things that really complimented my active, outdoor lifestyle.

What advice do you have for other women who want to get into the Outdoor Industry? First of all, I think this is an amazing time for women to get involved in the outdoor industry. We’re getting more representation than ever and it’s leading to big changes. However, authenticity is key. With so many people trying to be seen and heard in this industry, it’s important that your voice shines through unmasked. Pursue endeavors that you truly identify with and your passion will be channeled into success.

2017 Boise Wild Skills – Recap

Written by Kim Holloway and Stacey Hopstad

Seventy two girls flocked to the Jim Hall Foothills Learning Center on a hot August day for the second annual Boise Wild Skills.
We were excited to welcome back some of our favorite community partners; Outdoor Exchange, Air St. Luke’s, Idaho Mountain Search and Rescue, and Albertsons. New to Wild Skills Boise this year, was the addition of a mountain biking station. We were thrilled to include Boise Bicycle Project to round our group of awesome community organizations who support our event as station leaders.
The girls started off the day meeting girls their own age in their color coded teams. Boise Ambassador, Nicole Jorgenson, then lead them through 15 minutes of yoga to get them warmed up and mentally focused for the big day ahead.
ws6
With the wealth of trails in the Boise area it only made sense to add Mountain biking instruction to Boise Wild Skills and it proved to be both challenging and exciting. The Boise Bicycle Project volunteers were fun, energetic, knowledgeable and made sure each girl had an awesome day. BBP also generously donated 7 bikes, helmets, bike locks and bike lights to our participants who didn’t have the proper gear. After learning about trail etiquette and pre-ride safety checks all 72 girls took to the trails (some for the first time ever) to explore some of the beautiful terrain Boise has to offer. We had a few tears, a few band aids, but all in all, we had A TON of smiles. THANK YOU, BBP!!!!
ws2In addition to mountain biking, the girls went through stations filled with valuable education on Shelter Building, Navigation, 10 Essentials & Leave No Trace, and First Aid. In Shelter Building, a group of volunteers from Outdoor Exchange taught the girls what to pack for shelter, but also how to make a shelter using items found from their surroundings if they were ever stranded. The girls saw this as a fun opportunity to build with tarps, emergency blankets, and even garbage bags.
ws7

ws8Navigation was lead by the experts from Idaho Mountain Search and Rescue. They taught the girls the basics of how to read a topographic map and of course to Never Eat Soggy Waffles. The girls even used real compasses to put “Red in the Shed to find true North.
ws9Next up was 10 Essentials & Leave No Trace. SheJumps own Executive Director, Claire Smallwood, took the lead to teach the girls how to pack and prepare for an adventure as well as how to protect the beautiful places they visit. The girls took turns telling stories about a time when they were disappointed to find garbage or other ways humans had disturbed the animals or plants around them. They all left inspired to be advocates and experts at Leave No Trace.
ws-clar
ws5The last, and possibly most busy station, was First Aid. The girls were able to learn the process of what to do in case of an injury when they are out in the wild; Stay Calm, Get Help, and how to use their packed First Aid items. During the class the girls drew fake injuries with markers ranging from scrapes and broken bones to more elaborate/creative cougar attacks. They then treated these injuries with the help of the Air St. Luke’s experts. They also were able to watch the experts in action on real scrapes and bruises that came in from the mountain Biking station.

ws4Wild Skills Boise was made possible by a our special group of volunteers who gave their time to help make this an event the participants will never forget. Delicious volunteer lunches and snacks were donated by the ever generous Albertsons food store. Thank you all to helped make this such a special event for these young ladies.
