Barbara ‘Babsi’ Glanznig, hiking guide and trip leader for Ryder-Walker Alpine Adventures.

Barbara ‘Babsi’ Glanznig

Born with brains and brawn, this blonde bombshell was raised in the countryside of Austria where her sandbox was the great outdoors. Babsi eventually traded the mountains of Austria for the concrete jungle of Vienna to study law. When she was not in court, she could be found cooking for friends in her small city apartment, creating delicious meals inspired by her Oma. Having this creative outlet lead her to put the law aside in order to satisfy her hunger to travel the world, climbing, skiing, hiking and eventually becoming a certified Ashtanga teacher. Babsi returned to Telluride in 2009 with her brother Willi where, like him, she discovered Ryder Walker and re-planted her roots back in the Alps. Babsi is an open book of talent and proves that growing up in the outdoors leads to greatness. When she is not winning the Powder 8 Ski Championships, she is on her yoga mat saluting the mountains in gratitude.
