SnowBetties! adventures take place on Mount Hood at the Mazamas Lodge, Trillium Lake, or the White River Canyon area, every year in January or February. Up to 20 girls and 8 women forge strong relationships while they learn to snowshoe or cross-country ski together. As a group the participants also learn backcountry safety techniques—one year we even built a snow cave!—and map / compass skills, and participate in team-building and goal-setting exercises. All of this is working toward the central mission of Betties360: to inspire confidence, well being, and community in under-represented girls through action sports, outdoor adventures and life-skill education.
