Women’s Barefoot Week 2011

Saturday, February 26th, 2011

Women’s Barefoot Week at the World Barefoot Center will take place on October 29th to Nov, 6th 2011.   Space is limited, so be sure to sign up for your spot by calling the World Barefoot Center at 863-877-0039 and ask for the Women’s Barefoot Week Coordinator, Judy Myers.  The week is open to women ages 20 to 100– and all ability levels.  There is a fifteen percent discount on ski rates (no weekend rates charged) and all pro shop purchases.   Skiers can stay at the ski school house, the rental house down the road (complete with a hot tub!) or at local hotels.

“Women’s Barefoot Week is a special week set aside just for the gals,” said Judy.  “Women are the minority in this sport, so it’s nice to have a week to kick back and ski with other women and enjoy some fun on the water together.”

This year, Women’s Barefoot Week will feature a “Ski in Your Costume” challenge on Halloween. 

Keith St. Onge, David Small and Swampy dove into the spirit of Women’s Barefoot week in 2010 by donning pink shirts and skirts for the day.  “We got in touch with our feminine side that week,” joked Keith.  It will be interesting to see what Judy cooks up for the guys at the 2011 Women’s Barefoot Week.  Rumor has it that it just might be dresses this time– and the guys will have to barefoot in ’em!

Women’s Barefoot Week 2010 is featured in the March 2011 issue of Waterski magazine and Tales from the Foot:  A Look Back at  the WBC Women’s Week.   Karen Putz did a write up on the Chicago Tribune Chicago Now blog: Women’s Week at the World Barefoot Center.
