You’ll be guaranteed to laugh if you tour with Jessie. She loves meeting new folks on the skin track and has a knack for making you feel welcome. Jessie has been working with Backcountry Babes since 2020, and brings a wealth of experience from Breck Ski Patrol and NOLS.
Jessie has been a professional ski patroller at Breckenridge since 2017. She loves the team’s camaraderie, the medical calls, and even the windy ridgeline on avalanche routes—she laughs when recalling adverse moments like those and says ‘it makes you feel alive!’ Jessie is also a backcountry ski instructor for NOLS; she loves empowering students to get outside and realize that they can do things they never imagined.
Jessie deeply appreciates her backyard—she’s avid about exploring the terrain of Summit Country and enthusiastically says ‘YES!’ to hut trip opportunities. When the spring rolls around, Jessie follows the snow melt in her kayak—paddling whitewater is how she chases that feeling of powder skiing in the summer.
