Nicole, a native of the Pacific Northwest, grew up skiing and exploring the mountains with her family from a very young age. After graduating college with a B.S. in biochemistry she decided to follow her dreams of becoming a Colorado ski bum, finding herself in the tiny mountain town of Telluride. There she fell in love with the world of backcountry skiing, climbing, and general type II fun. From Denali, AK to Mt. Shasta, CA to the Alps, guiding has taken Nicole all over the world. Whether it’s sipping a cappuccino and taking in the views or climbing to high summits – Nicole is excited to share the beauty of the mountains with you!
