    The 5 stars can't justify just how epic these clinics with Stephanie really are!! I've had the opportunity to participate in back to back clinics this year in Michigan this after my 1st clinic last year. The knowledge, patience, strength and commitment that Steph and Matt give at each clinic is so positively encouraging that it's addicting! The woohoo's that are heard along with laughs are amazing and so are the lifetime friendships that are made! The encouragement received makes it feel like it's a private session even though it's a group. So glad there was a group to help with my multiple learning incidents and that I could return the favor! Am I pushed outside my comfort? Yes that's how you progress. I truly believe you get out what you put in! Am I addicted? DEFINITELY! Can't imagine attending a clinic without Steph!!! Do I recommend these clinics? OMG YES!!

    Experience of a lifetime!

    The clinic in Revelstoke in 2016 was one the most incredible experiences of my life and I can't wait to do the clinic in Sicamous in 2017! Stephanie and her assistant coach made everyone feel super comfortable and gave everyone the help and assistance they needed. I learned so much from those two days of riding and made some incredible new friends! For anyone that is looking to improve their skills and meet some other like-minded ladies this is an absolute MUST DO! Be prepared to have the time of your life!

    So worth it!!

    this is my second DSG clinic by steph and it helped me transform from trail rider to an intermediate backcountry rider! Steph is such a great instructor and we have a great time while learning new skills. I've had so many take aways from each clinic and was able to continue learning after the clinic was over. I highly recommend these clinics to any lady wanting to improve learning in the back country! I can't wait for my next one! Oh and all of the new friendships you will make is a definite perk!

    This clinic was incredible in every way. I was able to deepen my knowledge and re-adjust my personal approach to side-hilling, downhill U-turns, and overall awareness while playing in the trees. The 1:1 instruction was extremely helpful, and I appreciated the constructive coaching from Steph and her assistants. Lastly, I truly enjoyed the camaraderie of all the women in attendance; it was glorious to be surrounded by women who have a passion for the back country, the sport, and genuine interest in each other's successes!!!

    Top shelf instrucion!

    Posted by Tonya Brooks on May 16th 2017

    Stephanie has such amazing energy that her clinics stand out as some of my most memories on snow. I've attended two DSG clinics now and was able to take new skills from each one. I developed some life long friendships across the country at the clinics. If you are just starting out and timid or learning to spread your wings (skills), this is the training you will want! The atmosphere at all women clinics isn't competitive or catty, rather inspiring and amazing to watch other girls advance in skill. 6 stars to this one!
