Emilie showing her self portrait skills!

Emilie is back on board guiding again this year and we couldn’t be happier. She just got home (to the Adirondacks of Keene, NY) from an extremely successful expedition to India with fellow Ice Fest guides Janet Bergman and Freddie Wilkinson! Between the three of them they got five first ascents!! Emilie is an Outdoor Research athlete and she is also one of the nicest people you’ll meet and she does it all! She grew up in New Hampshire ski racing and was introduced to rock and ice climbing when she was in college. She crushes! Along with climbing and skiing well, she’s an excellent educator. Which is why we’ve got her teaching some of our women’s specific courses so keep your eyes peeled for more details down the road ladies!
