Join an all-star cast of coaches and guests for three days of on-snow ski training, strength & conditioning training, connection, health workshops, athlete panels and more at Sun Peaks on April 17–20!

The Girls Fast Forward Camp will again take place at Sun Peaks during the Mega Camp for female-identifying ski racers from all over BC, who will have a chance to connect and train together! The GFF athletes will experience 3 days of on-snow training with Canada’s top female coaches and athletes, strength & conditioning sessions, a female health workshop, an athlete panel – with national and provincial level female skiers – and a chance to connect with their future teammates from around the province.

(see Athlete & “Coach-Up” registration buttons below – the deadline is March 31st.)

Girls Fast Forward was started to create a more equitable experience in ski racing. In 2020, Canadian Women & Sport’s “The Rally Report” showed that 1 in 3 girls were dropping out of sport in Canada by late adolescence (Article linked here). Since 2020 the number of female ski racers in BC is trending positively! Considering these stats and that “If you can see it, you can be it”, Girls Fast Forward continues to strive for a future where more female ski racers are staying in the sport longer, performing at higher levels and experiencing more female leaders throughout!

“One of the focuses of the GFF camps is to continue to make female coaches and high-level female ski racers visible to the younger female skiers throughout Canada. It starts with access to these role models and continues with connection. Creating an environment where athletes and coaches can share their experiences and learn from one another is one of the coolest things. As a coach, having a crew of all-female coaches to work with is truly a special feeling. I think every athlete should have a chance to work with female coaches, just as they should with male coaches. Everyone offers something different and that diversity is important to development as an athlete and a coach. I am very excited for this year’s camp and hope to see you all there!”

Montana Molyneux, Women’s BC Ski Team Head Coach
