The Fear Workshop at Windham Mountain
Face your fears!
A women-only class taught by ski-guru Mermer Blakeslee, who helps women to face their on-mountain fears. A huge part of becoming a better skier is letting go and allowing gravity to work its magic. Many women shy away from doing so and limit themselves from reaching their full potential. Designed for skiers of all levels.
About Mermer:Mermer Blakeslee started skiing at Windham in 1960 at the age of three and has taught skiing here since 1979. In 1996, Mermer won Skiing magazine's Instructor of the Year Award. That spring, she successfully competed and became a member of the PSIA National Demonstration Team, an elite team which spearheads the development and direction of ski teaching in America and represents American skiing internationally (she was one of the few women and the only mother to do so). She has lectured at PSIA's National Academies and National Women's Seminars, and the National Ski Patrol's annual conventions. She has traveled throughout the country training ski instructors and for the last 24 years served as an examiner for PSIA-Eastern. She has been a coach for the Divisional Clinic Leaders, the Development Team, and the Eastern Demonstration team. Every spring in Snowbird, Utah, she leads the Women's Adventure Camp. She has run The Fear Workshop here at Windham for 25 years and has been called "the ski industry's fear specialist." She has published four books, A Conversation with Fear (formerly In the Yikes! Zone) about her work with fearful skiers and three novels, the latest being When You Live by a River.
