Morgan grew up in Denver, Colorado and spent most of her childhood hiking, biking and skiing in the Rocky Mountains. She moved to Washington in 2019 and since has fallen in love with the jagged North Cascade peaks and lush green PNW forests. Morgan recently started ski patrolling at Crystal Mountain and this summer will be her first season working professionally as a guide. When she isn’t patrolling or out skiing steep lines in the Washington backcountry, she spends her time singing in a band with fellow patrollers, taking photos of her friends, dancing, baking sourdough bagels and jumping into cold bodies of water. Morgan has a BE in Mechanical Engineering from Dartmouth College, where she competed in Division I rugby.
