Mountains

What did John Muir mean when he said: “The mountains are calling”? He knew they were a place where nature reigns supreme, and you can still find something wild. Mountain sports can include anything from hiking to high lines. In a nutshell, anything you can do on land (except biking) is better in the mountains and fair game for the mountain category.

Jenn's love for the mountains comes from twenty years as a professional skier and seven years as a whitewater guide. She's a mountain girl through and through. Ed came into his own in the mountains and deserts of Arizona. There he picked up endurance hiking, climbing, and expedition caving. Our love of the mountains shines through this entire category.
