It’s no secret that Vancouver and its surrounding areas are home to some of the best venues for action sports in the country (or even the world); whether it’s mountain biking, skiing/snowboarding, surfing, climbing, or more.

This October, the She Summits festival will be taking place in various locations around North Vancouver to celebrate the community of female-identifying athletes who exist in the sometimes male-dominated world of action sports.

Through movie screenings, workshops, panel events, and a group joyride, the She Summits festival focuses on the contributions to important social and environmental conversations.

From October 17 – 20, 2019, the She Summits festival will be hosting six unmissable events. If any of these catch your interest, make sure to sign up or buy a ticket soon, as most of the events have a set capacity and may become full quickly!
