A Holiday Ski Experience Like No Other
Join three-time Olympian, World Cup champion and Mammoth Team Athlete, Stacey Cook for a holiday ski (or ride) experience like no other.
What is Chixmas & Chix on Stix?
Chix on Stix, began in 2012 with Stacey's dream to team up with Mammoth Mountain to host a ladies-only retreat focusing on boosting confidence, pushing participants personal limits and providing unexpected experience while meeting new friends. We couldn’t pass up the opportunity make her ideas a reality and Chix was born. After three successful spring sessions, Stacey's vision continued to grow. In December 2014 Stacey and 30 women participated in the first one-day holiday special, aptly named "A Very Merry Chixmas".
Chixmas | December 28, 2016
Morning Session | Sunrise & Screen Printing
Spend sunrise with a stunning view to enjoy your morning coffee and kick-start the day with a yoga with a ski adventure from Parallax Restaurant. Return to the Mammoth Mountain Inn for a warm breakfast and jump into a DIY foil screen printing lesson hosted by Kiss A Cow studios. Create your own Chix shirt and cap off the morning with laughs and relax time. And that's just the morning session.
Space is limited to 30 ladies
Afternoon Session | Ski, Snowshoe & Supper
If you're up for a full day of fun or you're just not a morning person, the afternoon Chixmas is for you. Ski and "hut hop" (a European ski tradition) the afternoon away with Stacey & friends. Then, head inside the Mammoth Mountain Inn to prep for the next activity. Depart for a sunset trek to Minaret Vista for hot mulled wine and beautiful views. End the night with a light "supper-style" meal inside Yodler Restaurant in a private upstairs space.
Space is limited to 30 ladies
