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 and split-boarding.
