About your guide:

I love Winter Park! Not only have my husband and I lived here for over 12 years but I have snowboarded at this resort from the day I arrived. This is where I learned to ride and I have progressed over the years to feeling comfortable pretty much everywhere on the mountain. I have also grown to love being in the backcountry and was certified with an AIARE level 1 several years ago. My full time job is selling spirits and beer throughout Grand County. When I’m not selling liquor I enjoy snowboarding, mountain biking, running and cross country skiing. Being able to do all of these activities right out my back door is just one of the many reason I love living here. 


Snowboard Style:

I enjoy riding almost everywhere on the mountain. My favorite places to go are trees, moguls, steeps and anywhere you can find powder. I enjoy cruising blue runs but also like to get into more difficult terrain. The only place I don’t spend time is in our terrain parks. On most days will you probably find me riding the black runs on the backside of Mary Jane.


Why ride with Emily:

I am excited to be guiding this winter because I get to share my knowledge and love of this resort with others. If you want to spend the day looking for the best powder runs or just a few hours exploring our terrain, I’m you girl. I would love to enhance your experience at Winter Park Resort. 


I rode with Emily for "cruising on snowboard" and learning more about WP terrain on snowboard, and I had a great time. We communicated a few days before and on day of where to meet, so I felt very comfortable and taken well care of. Emily was super friendly, easy going and knowledgeable about the terrain and the best way to get around Winter Park (and avoid the steep moguls I did not want to ride). We covered a lot of ground in 2 hours and she gave me very helpful tips for the rest of the day.

My brother and I rode with Emily for "cruising the groomers" on snowboard, and we had a great time. Emily was friendly and knowledgeable about the terrain and the best way to get around Winter Park and Mary Jane. We covered a lot of ground in 3 hours. I would recommend Emily for other snowboarders.
