Dream Line

Wolverine

Ever since I was a teenager in junior high Ive dreamed of skiing big steep Alaska lines. Born and raised just north of Philly that dream seemed pretty far out of range. Sure enough 11 years later I had figured it out and made my way to living in Alaska. Everyday I live here I drool over amazing asethic ski lines that are enormous.

This November into December I spent a month traveling around Ecuador with 2 of my long time girlfriends Nicole Mansfield and Kristi Murrin.

Success! Our boats are on the plane! It’s happening! After arriving in Quito,... Read The Rest →

This fall, Nick Langowski and I took a 150 mile river trip down the Green River into the Colorado River. We launched from Ruby Ranch, Utah to begin our journey through Canyonlands National Park. Being in the desert was a treat to us. Finally, we don’t have to wear a drysuit! Warm weather and sun on our skin! In Alaska, that is hard to come by. As we started to head into Labyrinth Canyon, there was a feeling of total bliss and freedom. We were on a 14′ raft loaded for...

SixMileCreek - SheJumps - 1

On Sunday, August 10th 2014, I organized and brought together a group of 10 amazing women, few of which knew each other, to paddle Six Mile Creek in Alaska. Six Mile is a beautiful river located on the Kenai Peninsula, that offers class II-V rapids. Females of all abilities were welcome and thats exactly what we got!  There was a wide range of experience from beginners to expert whitewater kayakers that joined on the sections they felt comfortable paddling.                     We started off...
