There will be a presentation on Sunday afternoon indoors at Beaver Run in Breckenridge and a reception to follow with appetizers and drinks.


Keynote:

Ann Schorling will share research from her master's thesis on Increasing Gender Equity in Snowsports Instruction. In this research, Ann collaborated with Big Sky Resort in Montana to help their mountain sports school identify sources of bias in routine practices. This research led to a number of learnings about our industry. First, Ann and members of the school identified that gender bias exists in lesson assignments. Second, they recognized that the experiences of women in the industry can vary significantly depending on the size and skill of their minoritized group. Ann first presented this research at Interski 2023 in Levi, Finland, where it fanned an international movement toward improving gender equity in our profession. Since then, multiple schools across the U.S. have begun to implement her research suggestions and undertake their own internal change processes. Ann's session will include a 45-minute presentation followed by up to 30 minutes of questions.

Bio: Ann Schorling hails from Victor, ID and is a current member of the PSIA-AASI Alpine Team. She completed her Masters of Arts in Leadership in the fall of 2022, and currently works as a trainer and the Business Development Manager at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Ann is an Alpine and Telemark DECL in the Intermountain Region.
