evo + Coalition Womxn's Weekend
Join us for a weekend of inspiration and fun on the snow. We are gathering women to meet and ride with Coalition Snow's CEO, Jen Gurecki, a pioneering entrepreneur in the ski industry for a weekend of learning, sharing, and good times.
This spring we’ve partnered with evo to offer an amazing long weekend experience of skiing, snowboarding and learning in Leavenworth, Washington. The goal of this trip is skiing, yes, but even more so getting women, trans, and binary folx together in the same room to feel supported, make new friends, learn about how to start a business, further your career, and mitigate challenges in professional and everyday situations. Over the weekend, we’ll meet new friends, build camaraderie, and together become a part of the sisterhood of shred. With Jen, we’ll be able to discuss what the women at Coalition Snow have been able to build, the how and why behind it, and how that carries into our personal goals. The trip will be March 7th to 10th.
The trip is a part of evo’s evoTrip adventure travel packages, and will be hosted at the wonderful LOGE Leavenworth location. The LOGE is a cool blend of hostel, cabins, and community spaces, making it the perfect basecamp for our weekend of adventure and growth. Leavenworth meanwhile is a pretty town surrounded by great mountains including Mission Ridge and Stevens Pass. We’ll shred both of these mountains, on free Coalition demo skis and snowboards if you choose to. Check out a more detailed itinerary below and we hope to see you there!
Thursday – Arrive at King Street Station in Seattle by 4:00 PM to catch the 4:40 PM train to Leavenworth. Food and beverages are available for purchase on the train. We’ll arrive in Leavenworth at 8 PM to settle into the cozy hostel at LOGE Leavenworth, get to know Jen and your new ski buddies for the weekend, adjust skis and boards, then rest up for skiing the next day.
Friday – We’ll be cooking breakfast at the hostel before taking a van shuttle up to Stevens Pass at 8:00 AM. After a day of skiing on Coalition Snow’s 2019 demo fleet of new skis and snowboards, we’ll head to the factory where Coalition manufactures some of their skis for après and a factory tour. Dinner will be at the Latin inspired restaurant "South" in Leavenworth.
Saturday – After breakfast at the hostel, we’ll catch our shuttle to Mission Ridge Ski & Snowboard Resort at 7:00 AM for a full day of skiing and riding. Mission Ridge has a small mountain vibe, known for light snow and sunshine; it will be a blast. Once we’ve skied our fill we’ll head back to Leavenworth for campfire chats and dinner at the Blewett Brewing Company. We’ll have a formatted discussion with Jen on a few pre-chosen topics submitted by group members ahead of time, focusing on women’s product and participation in the ski/snowboard industry.
Sunday – We’ll have breakfast in town before taking a shuttle back to Seattle. We’ll be making two drop off stops, the evo Seattle Store in Fremont and King Street station from where we departed.
