I grew up in the Midwest doing gymnastics and then played tennis in college, I was far from any mountains but once I got a taste of Colorado I was hooked. After graduating from nursing school, I moved out west to make playing outside a priority. Nowadays it's weird if I don't get 100+ days of skiing in or several rides per week on my mountain bike. There are so many wonderful things about living in the mountains but my favorite aspect is the strong female friendships that form from days spent in the saddle, on the skin track, or acting like kids on a pow day.
