Hi, I’m Laurel! I grew up skiing and ice skating in rural New York and have been in love with the mountains as long as I can remember. After college, I moved West and quickly got hooked on trail running, rock climbing, ice climbing, and backcountry skiing. I love moving through the mountains efficiently whether that be on skis, by foot or on a rope, and I love gear! When I’m not playing in the mountains you’ll find me testing, tinkering and dissecting my gear closet. I also love to write, as well as teach and mentor those around me.
