Alta was raised in Wyoming, just outside Yellowstone National Park. Her first foray into the mountains occurred in her dad’s backpack. She dedicated her youth to competitive ski racing, rock climbing, and dance.
As an administrator at Uphill Athlete, Alta ensures that communications between teams within UA run smoothly.
Her experience using mountain sports as a vessel for learning about life, relationships, and herself has fueled an interest in nutrition, women’s sports physiology, and an ambition to help make the world of mountain sports a more inclusive community. She is now also focused on developing her technical skills to manage risks in all the disciplines of climbing, including alpine, ice, and backcountry skiing.
