Language is one of the most powerful tools instructors and coaches possess, and we carefully consider how to communicate through words to help each guest or athlete move their body for optimal on-snow performance. But another form of communication gets less attention; how the body speaks through sensations that inform the mind. Our job is to eloquently speak the languages of the mind-body and body-mind. This keynote will weave personal storytelling, applied communication strategies, and tactics for engaging body-mind practices to capture the essence of language: connection.

Because this event brings together so many amazing people, it’s essential to set aside time to connect, network, and discuss specific topics such as mentorship, training, community, and snowsports disciplines. Select whatever networking breakout room appeals to you, based on the subject. You can enter and exit rooms at any time. Please note that you don’t need to attend this networking session to earn CEUs.

This session will dive into the juggling act of being a mother while working in the snowsports industry. A panel of moms — both new and “kid-tested” — will shed light on their experiences with starting a family and discuss ways they’ve found success, where there’s room for growth within the industry, and how we can promote change. Panelists will provide positive feeback and practical advice for navigating motherhood within the snowsports industry.

Join Mercedes Ortega and Hailey Ronconi — the founders of Park Affair — as they shed light on building and fostering a community of women in snowsports. In this session, you’ll learn how two women created a prominent women’s community known for being inclusive, promoted a positive learning environment, and built a brand that continues to bring women into the snowsports environment. Park Affair is a women’s organization rooted in snowboarding, designed to inspire and encourage women to push their limits on and off snow.
