The girls loved being together with the girls from other schools. They commented that they never would have had the courage to snowboard in front of the boys.
Around 160 girls participated in the event.
Feedback from the participants and they number of girls who attended the the day event.
The event was free for participants unless they wanted to take lessons and it was a sponsored by the school. The girls also said not having the boys on the trip made it more enjoyable.
It is a greater challenge to get high school girls interested in physical activity.
This was the first time for the snowboarding event but Girls Healthy Living Week is an annual festival.
