Elly moved to the mountains to pursue her dreams. She grew up skiing all over the Western US and has since taken her skiing and recreating abroad, living in New Zealand, South Africa, Indonesia, and England. She has been an outdoor educator and leader for high school and college students, trekking and climbing in the US, South America, and Europe. Her recent adventure of living in a truck with her large dog, exploring the ski resorts of California, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, and Idaho provided lots of contemplative time to dream and pursue what has become Third Eye Backcountry. On any given day you can find her adventuring in the mountains with her dog, Elsa or playing in Excel.
