Ali has traveled all over the world. Her love of the outdoors started young, hiking and skiing in both the Alps and the mountains of Vermont. Introduced to rock climbing in college, Ali has climbed in Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Idaho, Utah, and Oregon. Her migration out West began when she moved out to Colorado to pursue a degree in Environmental Design, then later a Masters Degree in Architecture. Living in various mountain towns, Ali has worked as a backpacking guide, ski instructor, single pitch instructor, and designer – sometimes all at once. Ali values sharing outdoor experiences and skills with people of all walks and spreading her passion for the mountains and climbing in Rocky Mountain National Park.
