Julia’s grandfather sparked her love for sliding down snow on sticks. He was a mountain man and dragged her out on even the coldest days at a small skier owned hill in Vermont. She has been on the hunt for powder ever since. She was part of the first all female team to ski the Grand Teton, she has guided the highest peaks in North and South America, and her journey led her to become the fifth IFMGA certified woman in the US. She has taken her passion all over the world shredding first descents and composing her infamous poems. She is now happily Canadian settled in Squamish with an awesome husband and two mini-rippers.
