CAMPS – WORKSHOPS  – DREAMTRIPS

UNIQUE PASSIONATE EXPERIENCES SCALE UP PERFORMANCE

Sandra organized her first ‘all girls freeski camp in 2011’. Ever since women aged 18-56 from all over the world sign up for the annual #shadesofwinter freeride camps. Together with inspiring athletes & coaches and tourism associations Sandra has successfully hosted #shadesofwinter camps in AUSTRIA, SWITZERLAND, JAPAN and NEW ZEALAND.
As a newly official travel agency Sandra is ready to expand that section of the #shadesofwinter platform: a greater variety of CAMPS & retreats, new destinations, a growing roaster of inspirational COACHES & added summer outdoor activities. New WORKSHOPS offer opportunities to improve skills like handling avalanche emergency equipment, ski technique and more. And with individually tailored DREAMTRIPS to unique locations seen in one of our previous films, Sandra uses her all great connections to the best backcountry operations, guides and lodges all over the world, her experience and organization skills to create your best trip ever.
That’s TRAVEL LIKE SHADES.

Our camps give girls and women from all over the world to connect & have fun with likeminded people who share the same passion for the outdoors, get inspired & coached by leading female athletes and leave empowered for new adventures.

SNOW SAFETY

WE CAN NEVER KNOW ENOUGH, RIGHT?
Are you a mum who missed out the whole last season and now you want to get back on the horse and be prepared better than ever?

Are you sick of just following others and rather know more about it all? Then our SNOW SAFETY workshop is for you!

JANINA KUZMA

Janina is one of the most versatile female freeskiers in the world. She has competed on the Freeride World Tour as well as two winter Olympics in halfpipe skiing. She has won the NZ Freeski Open Big Mountain event seven times, is a two-time Canadian Freeski Champion and two-time World Heli Challenge Champion.
Following the announcement in 2011 that freeski halfpipe has been added to the Olympic schedule, Janina made the big call to take a break from the Freeride World Tour and instead followed the FIS World Cup circuit competing solely in the halfpipe discipline with the goal of qualifying for the Sochi Olympic Winter Games. Janina met her goal and was selected to represent New Zealand at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi and the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang . Now Janina has taken on the film producer role creating a new series called A Winter Affair.

SABINE SCHIPFLINGER

Growing up near Saalbach in Salzburger Land skiing always played an important part in her life. All started when she was two years old to ski racing in her youth Today Sabine is a graduate ski instructor and coaching young professionals. Besides her sports science studies at the University of Innsbruck she is working as a trainer within the Salzburger Skilehrerverband and competes at freeride contests. During summer she switches her skis for a bike and can be found as a mountainbike guide in Saalbach-Hinterglemm.

JULIA MANCUSO

Olympic Gold medalist and newly mum Julia Mancuso from the USA. Already during her time in the alpine ski racing circuit, basically her whole life, Julia has been tied to freeskiing. Throughout her successful career she though had to battle quite some injuries that kept her from really performing in the backcountry. Now, with a newly replaced and pain free hip and/despite a sweet infant by her side she feels ready to step it up again. Commitment and dedication have been her consistent partners for years.
