Amy's passion for life in the mountains began as a kid riding horses on pack-trips and skiing fueled by her wild-west family history who homesteaded outside the Wyoming Range. She remembers being drug around behind her grandpa's snowmobile on a plastic sled at high speeds which translated to a thrill-seeking life of professional freeride skiing. Today, Amy rides her sled to access more remote backcountry ski locations. On high avalanche danger days, she loves practicing powder turns on low angle terrain and progressing the skills that translate to more technical terrain. "I can't thank Jeremy Lato enough for taking me under his wing the past year, bringing my technical mountain riding to another level very quickly! Having a mentor in the sport has made all the difference and I hope to continue sharing the passion of sledding with other riders down the trail."
