Mountain Mentors pairs experienced outdoorswomen with aspiring female mountain athletes who share achievable, mountain-based goals. 

At the beginning of each season, accepted applicants are paired on a one-to-one basis with regards to activity of interest, time commitment, and skill level.  We facilitate mentorship pairings and community programming for women interested in or knowledgable in backcountry skiing, split-boarding, and climbing.
