If you’re a woman and you love to ski, you’ve come to the right place! You’ll find ski news, a directory of women’s ski resources, and a forum where you can chat about anything that has to do with skiing — gear, technique, resorts, and more — in a way that you can relate to.

Wendy Clinch, who founded and runs the website is also the author of Double Black, a mystery that takes place on the slopes of Vermont which is garnering positive reviews. The book will be released in January.
