Kenzie grew up skiing at a tiny one lift ski area in northern New Mexico and fell in love with the mountains at an early age. She started teaching skiing when she was 17 and did so through college at resorts in New Mexico and Colorado. She brings over ten years of experience working in the backcountry with clients and students as an Outward Bound instructor, assistant guide, faculty and Logistics Manager. Kenzie is a certified AIARE Course Instructor and has completed her Level 1, Level 2, and Pro 1 certifications. She is currently working towards her American Mountain Guides Association Ski Guide credential.
Kenzie is passionate about sharing the mountains in a fun and supportive environment and thrives with laughter, wild places, tasty snacks and a good dance party. When winter melts into spring you can find her in Bend, OR gardening, riding mountain bikes and rafting the rivers of the Northwest.
