“I think we are all addicted to the mountain air, to the torture and the suffering of it all.” Lindsay Mann This week I’m joined by mountain guide Lindsay Mann. Lindsay is one of the most talented skiers I’ve ever met, is a hilarious adventure partner, and incredibly humble. In our conversation we talk about ideal clients and guides, best reading material on Denali, and how to stay aware in the mountains.
Lindsay Mann grew up in Bedford, Massachusetts, and was a competitive ski racer who went on to compete at the collegiate level. During her time at Dartmouth College she continued to foster her love for the mountains while also winning an NCAA Championship. After college she began coaching alpine ski racing, and currently coaches U16s in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. During the summer Lindsay guides for Rainier Mountaineering Inc. (RMI) and Pacific Alpine Guides leading trips on Mt. Rainier, the North Cascades, Mt. Olympus, and Denali. Her reading material of choice on personal ski mountaineering trips and long expeditions are light-hearted Danielle Steele novels.
