There was an incredibly positive and high energy discussion about the stoke level of the ‘female-empowered’ but co-ed classroom environment. It was cool to hear our students discuss the value of the learning environment–recognizing the women’s empowerment focus of the Babes program but recognizing the reality that their future teamwork will consist of co-ed teams in the backcountry. Lots of positive feedback to continue to create more co-ed Babes courses.
