Going Forth with a Beat

Written by: Linsey Warren Music has this associative power. The power to invoke old memories and sentiments as well as guide our hearts towards new adventures. Memories can be pulled forth from hidden depths by a simple chord, or alternatively, a few well timed lyrics can lift our flagging spirits and weary feet, and carry… Read more »

Snowpack Pale Ale: A Fremont & SheJumps Collaboration

Written by: Krystin Norman, SheJumps Seattle Ambassador The original idea for Snowpack Pale Ale came from drinking a beer after skiing with my boyfriend and friends. We thought it would be super cool to make a collaboration beer with Fremont Brewing (where I work full-time in the Quality Lab as a Microbiologist) and SheJumps (where… Read more »

Mom with a Mission

SheJumps Co-Founder Vanessa Pierce takes on the Snowbird Hill Climb Written by: Vanessa Pierce I love being active. I’m your average weekend warrior, casual evening worker outer and lover of all types of outdoor adventures.

A Woman’s Place Is On The Wall

Written by: Cathy O´Dowd If you ask people to imagine a climber, they’ll probably visualize someone who is thin, strong, young – and almost certainly male. A young man, biceps bulging, doing a series of pull-ups with his feet swinging free below him. In fact, the blazing new talent who on track to become the… Read more »

A Reminder to Stay Humble

Written by: Anna Bernard I come to face-to-face with the trunk of a tree and with fresh powder nearly up to my neck. Utter silence surrounds me and I slowly rework the logistics that led me here. I am alone, concussed and half-buried in snow, in unmarked terrain. I yell for the people I was… Read more »
