Mim Sodergren Women’s Ski Program

Mim Sodergren, with her husband Mike were well loved instructors and mentors who taught skiing at Falls Creek during the 80’s. For two decades, the couple's passion for skiing circled the world, from Falls Creek and Thredbo in Australia, to Park City, Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley in the USA. During her time in Falls Creek, Mim was instrumental in developing teaching techniques specifically for women both young and not so young with all levels of skiing experience. Both Mim and Mike's lives were tragically cut short in the Thredbo Landslide in 1997.

The Mim Sodergren Women’s Ski Program has continued in honour of our dear friends. The program offers separate Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced groups. It is the ideal environment for women who are looking to gain new skills and improve their technique in a fun, supportive environment.
