Originally a Pennsylvania native, Anne migrated west on a cross-country road cycling adventure. She eventually landed in Breckenridge, CO and Moab, UT, where she discovered her love of backcountry skiing and mountain biking. Anne has over a decade of combined experience working in avalanche education, backcountry ski and mountain bike guiding, and avalanche forecasting. Anne is currently pursuing a PhD with the Simon Fraser University Avalanche Research Program (SARP) in British Columbia to better understand how people process information to manage avalanche risk in their environments. She works with Avalanche Canada as a public avalanche forecaster and with the American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education (AIARE) as an Instructor Trainer and Education Committee member.
She finds the untracked mountains and the women who seek to explore them endlessly inspiring, and she is grateful for the opportunity to combine education with powder turns with the Babes.
