Snow & Flow
 

Ladies... you better start getting those layers on, because we are going to the snow!

 

Wild Women Journeys is heading to Australia's Snowy Mountains this winter for a week of fun on the slopes, where your snowboard and your skis will be your unconditional, best friends! If this is your first time trying any of these snow sports, do not worry a thing - we've got you covered! We have contacted the wildest female ski instructors out in the mountain to teach you the fundamentals of skiing in a safe and supportive environment. Otherwise… Let's roll!

 

We can't promise you won't be sore after spending all day out and about in the snow, but what we can promise you is a nice and cozy accommodation to arrive to, nourishing comfort food that adapts to all dietary requirements, cups of hot chocolate by the fireplace (or wine... or both!) and a much-needed, restorative Yoga & Sound Healing Meditation to heal the body and the mind from our busy lives. We will also challenge ourselves with a Wim Hoff breath & ice-bath experience that will most definitely get us out of our comfort zones (that’s what WWJ life is all about after all!) Finish that up with a BackCountry hiking adventure where you will hike the highest peak in Australia, Mt. Kosciuszko, guided by the leading females in this industry. This trip is, without a doubt, the perfect balance between wholesome & wild, and definitely an adventure that you won't forget!

 

Does this sound like you? Then come onboard! We have 10 spots available for the Wildest Women out there!

Experience

 

  • Ski / Snowboard

 

This is a beginners level ski and yoga trip, you don't need to have any experience skiing or snowboarding whatsoever. Perhaps this is your first time in the snow - how exciting is that!? For that, we have created a super welcoming and open space for you to step out of your comfort zone and try something new with like-minded girls. You can also pre-book ski lessons with us to ensure you get the most out of this ski trip!

 

All other levels are also welcome! Intermediate and advanced ski & snowboard girls can benefit from this snow trip by hitting the slopes at their own pace.

  • Yoga

 

  • All of our yoga classes will be at Beginner level, so no previous experience is required. Yoga is an amazing and inclusive practice for your body, mind and soul - no level of flexibility or fitness is necessary, just listen to your body and participate to your own capabilities! 

  • Variations and progressions will be offered to cater to more advanced practitioners.

Getting there:

We will all meet at Bimberdong property in the Perisher Valley on the 22nd of August, check-in time being at 4:00 p.m. To get here, you have 2 options:

 

  1. Perisher is located almost half way between two main cities: Sydney and Melbourne. From Sydney it is approximately a 5-hour drive, and from Melbourne, 7 hours. If you are visiting us from either city or one of its surrounding areas we highly recommend you to hop on your car and make an epic little road trip out of it! The NSW / Victoria hinterland is an incredible, rugged environment full of hidden, secret little spots for you to enjoy along the way

  2. If you are making your way to Perisher from any other part of the country (or if you don’t want to drive), your best option is to fly straight into Canberra, which is the closest airport to Perisher. From there, it is approximately a 2.5 hour drive to get to our beautiful snowy accommodation. If you decide upon this option, we offer transport to and from Canberra / Perisher at no extra cost (included in the price). Just let us know ​your flight and/or accommodation details and we will arrange appropriate pick-up for you.

Itinerary:

  • The following itinerary is an accurate estimate of the activities that we will be doing during the trip. These activities, as well as the times, may vary due to weather conditions or by common consent of the group. At Wild Women Journeys, we don’t like to set things on stone, as we believe that traveling should be a mindful activity that adapts to our present feelings and requirements. We like to leave some room for unpredictability and spontaneity! That’s what life is all about at the end of the day. 😊
