Fast and Female
Join Australia's best female cross country skiers for a morning of ski activities and fun with Fast & Female Australia at Falls Creek, Lake Mountain and Perisher.
Fast and Female Australia is dedicated to empowering females to stick with sport and lead a healthy lifestyle through dynamic and inspiring sports based events. The events give you the opportunity to get cross country ski tips from some of the Australia's best cross country skiers including Olympians and other Junior National Team members.
Participants are led by the amazing ambassadors through a range of different skill and game based stations, including laser biathlon. The ambassadors give you their best tips on how to make skiing easier and also share their stories on why they love sport and how it has a positive impact on their lives.
The events are open to girls aged eight to nineteen years of any skiing ability or experience. There is also a special 19+ group for adults who want to improve their skiing and be part of the 'Pink on Piste' experience.
Ski de Femme
Ski de Femme is proudly presented at Falls Creek by the Birkebeiner Nordic Ski Club. This community event has been going since 1989 and is run by volunteers as a day out on xc skis for women!
Ski De Femme offers free cross country skiing instruction in small groups for both novice and intermediate skiers in a choice of classical or skating techniques. The clinics are fun and a great way for women of all abilities to learn and get into cross country skiing.
Meet in the Nordic Bowl for a lesson and then some fun races (1km/2.5km or 5km) for all abilities. Enjoy yummy scones and a cup of tea. And maybe even win a spot prize (kindly donated by local business)!
It is free to participate in Ski De Femme. Equipment can be hired at Windy Corner from Falls Creek Nordic Hire prior to the clinic.
