VAIL — Inspired by the Norse goddess of winter, Vail Mountain will host Skadi Fest, an inaugural women’s ski event, today through Friday. Female skiers will be treated to customized on-mountain guided experiences with female instructors, evening VIP events and female-specific ski equipment demos.

United by a passion for skiing and the outdoors, Skadi Fest is an event designed by women for women and is offered for any level of skier.

“Skadi, pronounced ‘Scotty,’ means the Norse goddess of winter, and in essence, this will be a gathering of skiing goddesses, near and far,” said Kelly Ladyga, vice president of corporate communications. “This event in January is reflective of the overall expanded female-specific offerings we are providing this year companywide, and we hope that the welcoming environment of this event helps ignite, renew or enrich the participants’ passion for snowsports.”



From film premiers to a culinary presentations and wine tasting education, Skadi Fest is about the full experience, both on- and off-mountain. Participants will also receive a 20 percent discount on any treatments at RockResorts Spas at The Lodge at Vail and The Arrabelle at Vail Square.

“Skiing is about more than just making turns; the friendships and camaraderie built while skiing enhance the experience, and we hope that’s what Skadi Fest participants ski away with — improved skills and new or deepened connections with others,” Ladyga said.
