Hi all – my name is Sheena and I just joined today! I live in the Bay Area (CA) and work as a User Experience researcher. I grew up in Northern California and have loved spending time in the Sierras for as long as I can remember. I love to ride my bike, and hike and backpack, and this is my second season of doing backcountry splitboarding (yay to climbing mountains in the winter now too)!. I’ve got a lot of work to do building up a base, and I need to have more discipline in training in order to have more fun, be safer, and go further doing the things I love. I’m not training for any particular event, but I would love to be able to be confident that I can put in a 10,000 ft day come volcano-skiing season in the springtime, and cover more ground (and more passes) on summer backpack trips, as well as understand my body, heart, fitness, and general health better than I currently do — I feel like a newb when it comes to training, and it feels good to be joining this group of awesome women to embark on this journey!
Hello to all!
I am excited to meet you all and hear about what exciting things you’re training for!
My name is Lauren and I’m between Bishop and Berkeley, California right now. After three years of working on the Yosemite Valley Search & Rescue team and climbing nearly full-time, I’m now back in grad school full time studying journalism at Berkeley. It’s been a hard lifestyle transition and am psyched for some more structure to my training. I climb, run, and ski and am currently training for a spring ski traverse of Yosemite.
If anyone here is in northern California, I’d love to meet up for adventures!
