AFS 2014: Friendships Built, Memories Made

Written by: Cristy Watson

We’ve previously shared stories about what is learned at the annual ski mountaineering course. You can check out the 2014 course recap here, and read several great write-ups by Stephanie Nitsch at backcountry.com on what it means to ski like a girl and how to pack for the trip. Beyond the experience of learning about glacier travel, tour planning, navigation, and just getting out there together, there was the downtime. As a participant of the course, you spend a solid week with like-minded women doing something you all love – and in the process friendships are built, plans made for future trips, and many memories created.

These are the ladies of the 2014 class of Alpine Finishing School:
