"I am stoked to be bringing the SheJumps passion and excitement to Big Sky, a town that elicits the same emotions in so many skiers and snowboarders!," said Cristy Watson, SheJumps Regional Coordinator. "It‟s going to be an amazing experience to spend a day on Lone Peak with all the amazing women that call Big Sky their home or ski destination."
"These Get the Girls Out! events are about raising the collective excitement and energy for what it means to be a female snowsports enthusiast," said Lynsey Dyer, SheJumps co-founder. "We just believe in fostering the spirit, and to do that you don't have to be a pro--because the best skier is the one having the most fun!"
