RYAN REPORT – Women’s Day: The X factor in skiing

Reading Time: < 1 minutes

Skiing is a male dominated industry. We make up more than half of skiers on the slopes and that ratio skews even farther when it comes to the employees, both at the resort and at the companies that make the gear we rely on. Happily there are exceptions to the rule.

To celebrate Women’s Day we rounded up a few of the women founded, owned or run companies in the ski industry. If we missed any let me know: ryan@skicanadamag.com
