Guinevere Allen


I love pushing the limits of wide-open spaces, from helicopter skiing, to paragliding, to sky-running at 11k ft. For me nature is a source of self-awareness and empowerment. Can't wait to share that "breaking the threshold feeling" with my fellow female adventurers.

Holland Howe

Salt Lake City

Holland grew up in Montana and now calls Salt Lake City home. She loves to ski, backpack, flyfish and try anything new. When she isn’t working as a pediatric nurse, you can find her in the mountains with a watercolor kit and too many layers and snacks.

Kathy Aylward

Sandy, UT

Kathy is originally from the East Coast, but has arrived in the Salt Lake area after time in the South Lake Tahoe, CA and Crested Butte, CO. No matter where she is, she tries to ski as much as possible and also takes advantage of her other favorite outdoor activities; hiking and kayaking. When she's not playing outside, chances are she's either snuggling with her pup Annie, baking, reading, or spending time with her husband.

Paige Harasha

Salt Lake City, UT

She/her. Wisconsin native currently in Salt Lake City, UT. Outdoor lover. Dog mom. Addicted to cheese, coffee, chicken pot pie and Netflix. Physician assistant.

Alexa Lampasona


Alexa was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia but now calls Boise, Idaho home, where access to amazing mountains and trails is just out the backdoor. She grew up running, following in the footsteps of her parents and grandparents, and now she explores the outdoors through ultradistance trail races, mountain or gravel biking, downhill and cross country skiing... usually with her dog-ter Ava in tow. She also reps some pretty cool outdoor brands in her public relations job.

Aakanksha Gavali

In search of some new wilderness adventures, Aakanksha recently moved to Utah from Seattle. Eager to create memories and experiences, she loves to spend her time traveling, hiking, backpacking and trying new activities. The mountains and the (preferably sunny) outdoors have always been her happy place. Aakanksha works in tech and is an active part of the fitness and foster care community. When she’s not working or adventuring, she loves to cook, read, play the piano and spend time with her friends.

Kristin Pulatie


Originally from Arizona, Kristin now lives in Santa Fe with her beloved hound dogs. A retired triathlete, she enjoys trying new activities and participating in local races. Kristin has a passion for skiing, trail running, and sunshine and hopes to incorporate more bikepacking into her life. She also loves donuts.

Angela Staup


An Idaho native, Angela grew up romping through the forests, mountains, and wild waters in every season. She has practiced and competed in martial arts for almost 30 years and is a 6th degree black belt. For the past decade, she dedicated herself to working in the ski industry; maintaining terrain parks, grooming, snowmaking, and risk management. When she isn’t on the snow, the trail, the mat, or road, she enjoys cooking, crafting (especially crocheted penguins), reading, and just being quiet. Creating community, spying adventure around every corner, embracing challenges, and encouraging empowerment of others are the driving forces in her life.

Nicole Penrose


Nicole "Niki" is a Sun Valley native who transplanted to Phoenix, AZ for college and decide to move back to the mountains upon graduating. She is a ski instructor in the winters for both Sun Valley Resort and the adaptive organization Higher Ground. In the summer she can be found exploring the mountains with her dog Bruce. As a female BIPOC outdoor enthusiast, her goal in life is to get as many people outside and to share the stoke far and wide.

Jess Briggs


As a child, the mountains of Colorado was my play zone and as an adult, Idaho has become my home base for exploration. River guiding was the gateway sport that led the way to exploring a host of other outdoor activities and challenges. Outdoor recreation has been a significant root in my life that has shaped who I have become and continues to ground me as I grow older. The outdoors nourishes my soul and recharges my inner energy and purpose. I am looking forward to introducing my 7 year old daughter to the beauty and excitement of outdoor play; along with introducing her to powerful female leaders that will serve as role models as she grows older.

Nicole Jorgenson


As a ski patroller, a passionate rider of all kinds of bikes and general lover of the outdoors, Nicole has a strong desire to share her enthusiasm for learning and recreating outside. She loves pushing boundaries and limits and hopes to instill the courage in other women to do the same.

Kristen Brevik


Kristen was raised in Washington, growing up in Spokane and going to college in Bellingham. Now settled in Boise, she loves what Idaho has to offer. Open to trying (and hopefully somewhat succeeding in) all sorts of activities, she's happiest on the ski slopes and hiking trails.
