I’m loving life in sunny Mexico, but these women-only ski camps at Utah’s legendary Alta Lodge have me craving a little slope time. What about you?

Why go

An annual favorite, these ski camps are ideal for busy women seeking an active winter getaway that doesn’t require a lot of planning. All-inclusive convenience—lodging, meals, skis, instruction, and lift tickets—make the camps an easy ski vacation choice for solo female travelers and women traveling together.


About the camps

Alta Lodge Women’s Ski Camps are immersion programs for skiers who want to advance their skiing skills in a multi-day ski experience. Instructors from Alta’s Alf Engen Ski School spend the day with participants in the mountains and then join them for après ski and dinner. “Many women come back each season for the camps, and we are at a point where a lot of them are now ready for our advanced to expert ski camp,” says Jen Scott, special programs manager for Alta Ski School.
