Born and raised in Alaska, Ashley has a deep rooted passion for being in the mountains. She worked for the Outward Bound School in Colorado and Alaska for nine years, currently teaches wilderness medicine, and is On-Site Safety for Nat Geo TV shows across the U.S. She is the co-founder of the Carry Your Cup campaign, the creator and hostess of the Sharp End Podcast and hosts a nine day women's heli-ski camp in Haines, Alaska called Snow Sisters. She loves to spoil her 11 nieces/nephews. She daydreams about ripping her snowmachine around the Alaskan glaciated backcountry in search of untouched pow lines to rip on her snowboard.
Born and raised just north of Toronto, I took the move out west right after my undergrad. I was accepted into the Mountain Adventure Skills Training Program in Fernie BC and have been ski patrolling in the winter time, ever since. Still part time ski patrolling in the winter, mountain biking and canoeing in the summertime, I am happiest when I am outside!
Raised in CO, Britta knew upon receiving her Masters in International Policy that she was still going to need mountains alongside a purposeful career so she moved to Juneau, AK to work in a feminist agency. Non-violence (between humans and human/environment) and healing (mostly in the environment climbing/skiing/trail running/mountain biking/yoga-ing/SUPing/hiking/road tripping/etc and also with humans) make Britta tick.
Stoked to have found a home in the mountains of BC, Ming can be convinced to do just about anything outside. While mountain biking is her usual love, any outdoor endeavour with her newly expanded family brings out her biggest smiles.
Known for being a little silly and very grounded, Cindy is the Girafficorn in human form. This positive nature-loving free-spirited explorer can be found playing outside, in any weather with a smile on her face. Her passions are biking, hiking/scrambling, skiing and sun worshipping. Cindy is stoked to be a part of the She Jumps team!
