The WAC is hosting an all women’s riding clinic February 18-19th. We have 12 spots open to the public on Feb 18th, and 6 spots on the 19th. This is an awesome opportunity for local women riders to improve their riding, working with Nicole Sullivan aka “Marmot” and Lisa Granden. Nicole and Lisa specialize in riding technique for all riding levels. Join them for one day or both. Cost is $225 per person. You can pay via venmo: @WAC2020 or Paypal: @wallowaavalanche
Required: Please email Victor@wallowaavalanchecenter.org once you have paid so we can add you to the roster.
Nicole (AKA Marmot) Sullivan based out of Wilder, Idaho has been a backcountry snowmobiler for a little over two decades. Over the past 22 years, Marmot has represented women’s specific snowmobile gear companies, lead and organized several women’s snowmobile rides, and has obtained her Rec 2 Motorized avalanche certification, with plans to continue avy education in 2023 and beyond. Marmot’s highlight and passion each snowmobiling season, is coaching and teaching womens backcountry snowmobiling clinics. For the 22/23 season Marmot will be participating in BRP’s wear the future program, coaching womens riding clinics in Montana and Eastern Oregon, co-hosting the Idaho Backcountry Ladies Ride in Stanley, attending backcountry womens group rides, and squeezing in a little freeriding with her friends.
Lisa Granden is an Idaho native who has 16 years of backcountry riding experience. She lives in the Sawtooth mountains and works as a snowmobile guide and teaches Sled Sister riding clinics. She co-hosts the annual Idaho ladies ride and spends nearly every winter day on a sled exploring new terrain or teaching backcountry skills. Her lifelong passion is being in the mountains, and sharing the incredible experiences that nature can provide. Her ride this season is a 2023 SkiDoo Summit Expert Turbo 165, and she’s always hunting for deep powder, great tree riding and natural feature jumps.
Note: All riders need to have avalanche transceiver, shovel, probe, radio and appropriate pack. If you need to borrow some of these items let us know.
