Today is the inaugural International Women’s Ski Day. In the past few years the number of ladies clipping in has declined and this event is hoping to address the fall in numbers. Women are currently outnumbered on the piste and the campaign, being led by K2 is hoping to encourage more ladies to get involved in the sport.

All over the world resorts are holding events to celebrate today – take a look at this map to see if anywhere near you is getting involved or sign up to the Facebook page.

To inspire you ladies to pick up your skis and head to the bottom of the nearest ski lift we’ve brought you a ‘top five’ of the biggest, best and most important female free-skiers in recent years.
