Kristie grew up in Oregon’s PNW. After skiing off the summit of Mt Hood for the first time, she fell in love with ski mountaineering. In the winter, she works as a Ski Patroller and Avalanche Dog trainer on Mt Hood. During the warm months she lives and breaths climbing and guiding. This year, she will bring her background in international travel and adventurous spirit to the Kilimanjaro program. Kristie usually spends her fall season in search of new climbing areas throughout the world and praying for snow.

The entire two weeks came off without a hitch. Given the logistics of international travel we never waited for any part of the trip. Each day’s climbing was enjoyable and well-planned. The safari could not have run more smoothly. Most of the group found the experience a defining moment in their lives. Related
