PSIA-AASI commits to fostering an inclusive community that welcomes and encourages women to excel within the association and industry. While the percentage of snowsports participants is equal male-to-female, the male-to-female ratio of PSIA-AASI members is 62% to 31%. PSIA-AASI partnered with Colorado-based research firm RRC Associates to send female members a 23-question survey designed to examine women’s experiences within PSIA-AASI. The survey’s key findings are presented in the Women Belong on the Mountain Report.

The Women’s Initiative Task Force

This task force advises PSIA-AASI’s leadership about the needs of women in the organization, provides a voice, and advocates on their behalf. While women are active snowsports participants and PSIA-AASI members, females are underrepresented in both PSIA-AASI’s leadership and higher levels of certification. The WIT’s goal is to support women so they can grow as educators and leaders.
