We are excited to announce the 2011 lineup of Chicks with Picks clinics! New to the program is a clinic for our more experienced climbers who are looking to “graduate” to a new challenge in their ice climbing – on multi-pitch routes in the backcountry! We are also now offering special “dirtbag” pricing – available for all our Chicks with Picks clinic offerings – for chicks who want to pay for guided instruction only and handle food and lodging expenses on their own. Here’s what we’ve got to offer for the winter of 2011:

- The Graduate, Jan. 14-17 – Are you ready to graduate to a new level of ice climbing? This clinic is for intermediate ice climbers and offers a 2-to-1 ratio for Chicks to develop advanced skills outside the ice park in backcountry climbing. Our graduates will focus on avalanche awareness, terrain assessment, and efficient transitions in multi-pitch climbing on some classic San Juan backcountry climbs.

- The Sampler, Jan 14-17 – There’s a little something for everyone with the Sampler! This clinic focuses on the technical skills any self-sufficient chick needs in her ice climbing tool kit. There will be three days of climbing during this 4-to-1 ratio clinic at the Ouray Ice Park and the opportunity to try out some sample gear, meet new climbing partners and improve of course improve ice climbing skills!

- The Complete, Jan. 25-29 – The backbone of the Chicks program, the Complete is our most popular and longest-running clinic! Within the four days of ice climbing at the Ouray Ice Park we also pack in yoga, workshops and a skills day for specific instruction in rescue techniques, mixed climbing, alpine skills and more, all at a 4-to-1 ratio.

- The Quickie, Jan. 30-Feb. 1 – This clinic is a great option for Chicks without a lot of time or money! Just like it sounds, the Quickie is a fast - two days of climbing at a 4-to-1 ratio. For those who want to cautiously test their ability to ice climb (or their ability to tolerate cold temps), this is the perfect clinic with very little commitment but still the high-quality instruction, demo gear, and networking events that are part of our longer clinics.
