Connecting Women with the Great Outdoors: Women’s Outdoor Connection event in Seattle

SEATTLE, WA – October 2023 – Powder Poobah is proud to announce their sponsorship of the Women’s Outdoor Connection on Sunday, October 22, 2023. This women’s event will take place at The Collective in Seattle at 400 Dexter Ave North, from 1:00 to 5:00 pm.


The event aims to bring together women of all ages and abilities who share a love of the outdoors with the women’s groups that create events and activities.


Women will learn about the groups and talk with the leaders and volunteers who organize a wide range of outdoor activities specifically for women. There will be plenty of opportunities to network, share experiences, and acquire new skills.


From hiking, mountain biking, skiing, and snowboarding to rock climbing and outdoor photography, these women’s groups help motivate women to embark on outdoor journeys.  They hope this event can build up confidence levels as women become part of a supportive community that encourages growth, empowerment, and personal connections.


Meet the following:

  • Amber Parucha Outdoor Photography
  • Crank Sisters
  • Edge Outdoors
  • Girl Get After It (GGAI)
  • Never Stop Moving
  • Rippin Chix
  • SheJumps
  • Shred It Sisters
  • Sisters In Action Sports (SAS)
  • To the Mountain Shuttle


This event is hosted by Andrea Hamilton, event coordinator for Powder Poobah, a long-time PNW snow forecast newsletter. “We are excited to host this event and bring together so many women who share our love of outdoor adventures,” said Andrea Hamilton. “Not everyone is hard-core, or an expert. There are plenty of women who want to try something new. Our goal is to connect women with like-minded individuals and make it easier for them to have more fun outdoors.”


Registration is $45, and includes food, beverages, raffle ticket, and an inspiring speaker series.


The Women’s Outdoor Connection event is made possible thanks to the support of our venue host, The Collective Seattle, as well as raffle sponsors Woolly Clothing, Sturtevant’s, Summit at Snoqualmie, and many others. Proceeds from the raffle will benefit Mary’s Place of Seattle which provides support services for women and families in need.


In the spirit of giving, this event will also serve as a collection point for new or gently used rain and cold weather apparel in all sizes for women, kids, and men, including new underwear for both kids and adults in all sizes.
