Chicks with Picks

It may be a little too early to be thinking about snow, so I know its way too early to be thinking about ice. Nonetheless Chicks with Picks is an organization that tackles a year round feat, to help raise money for womens shelters.

Backcountry.com is stoked to help out their cause through donating items for their silent auctions this upcoming ice season. Here is what Kim Reynolds has to say about the 2008 ice season:

Clinics are open to gals (sorry guys) of all abilities, all ages, all shapes and all sizes. Our motto “kiss my axe” (ice axe, that is) pokes fun at the sassy, approachable attitude that keep women returning year after year. We teach technical skills & self reliance in a safe and supportive environment that inspire our chicks to become confident (if not righteous) climbing partners. We are NOT kidding! Sign up for beginning to advanced skills in two icy locations with all demo gear included. You’ll get the scoop in a 4-to-1 ratio with our famous girly-guides which alone, is worth the price of admission.

Our theme "women climbing with women, for women" promotes women's empowerment, the
spirit of service and giving back to the community. Chicks with Picks has raised $116,800 for local women’s shelters through hosting public auctions during our events. After all, it’s wayyy more than “just” ice climbing...it’s life changing.

New to Chicks – we are now offering Chicks on Sticks back country ski trips in Canada & Mountain Mamas trekking excursions in Nepal. Don’t forget to check out our Karen McNeill Scholarship Fund because the possibilities just never end!
