The first ever REI Outessa Summit is right around the corner. The first two events of the summit will take place at the Kirkwood Resort near Lake Tahoe, Calif., from Aug. 19-21, and in Powder Mountain near Salt Lake City, Utah, from Sept. 9-11.
The REI Outessa Summit welcomes all attendees no matter their experience level, to explore numerous outdoor activities and classes such as camping, backpacking, kayaking, outdoor cooking, mountain biking, climbing, yoga, or hiking. Each class will 15 -20 participants and will have different levels for beginner, intermediate and advanced. The summit will be led by 60-plus guides and will also include panels and seminars from female elite athletes of several outdoor disciplines.
In a recent interview, Outessa Summit co-founder Julia Stamps Mallon said, “When you get a group of women together, I typically find that when they see someone else is doing it, that they can do it too—it’s not out of the realm of possibility. We really just want people to challenge themselves within their comfort levels and try something new.”
The REI Outessa Summit offers a weekend in the mountains of memorable adventure experiences led by expert guides and a chance to connect with like-minded ladies. Ladyhawk is stoked to be participating in the event at Powder Mountain with exceptional group of women, including the Director of Member Strategy and Engagement of Camber Outdoors – Amy Luther.
