WOMENZone, created by the newest member of Release Wanaka’s team, Prairie Pritchett, is dedicated solely to developing and offering packages that are created by women, for women.

The first foray of WOMENZone comes with an exciting partnership with Jo Guest of the international organisation, Mission WOW.

The course is aimed at proficient skiers who want to develop their off-piste skill base and confidence and, ultimately, to introduce them to the wonders of backcountry touring. The first two days are spent honing off-piste skills under the tuition of outstanding local female instructors. On days 3 and 4, the women take what they’ve learned and venture into the backcountry with two world-renowned female Himalayan guides to learn backcountry travel and safety skills.

Luxurious evenings are spent at a more leisurely pace, indulging with in-house restorative yoga classes and massage treatments. Gourmet dining experiences featuring menus specially designed to refuel and nourish active bodies, combined with private wine tasting from local award-winning wineries round off the day.

With the guides, instructors and special guests we have lined up there will be no shortage of inspiration, conversation and entertainment.
