Skiing with the guys can be great fun. But when it comes to learning new slopeside skills—like navigating steeps, moguls, or backcountry terrain with confidence—many women prefer the support and rapport of other gals. That’s why so many top ski mountains all over the world, from Vail to Verbier, host ski programs and camps especially tailored to women. Some of these let participants learn from the best of the best (including current and former U.S. Ski Team members); others combine instruction with spa treatments, parties, and sightseeing amid dazzling mountain scenery. Here are our favorite women’s ski camp picks for the 2015-16 winter season.
