This year we are excited to host Patagonia athlete Caroline Gleich! Caroline Gleich is a professional ski mountaineer and adventurer based in Salt Lake City, UT. When she’s not on snow, she loves trail running, alpine climbing, ridge scrambling, biking and dreaming about her next human-powered adventure.

You may have seen her on the cover of Powder, Backcountry or Ski Magazines or in a ski films. A nature lover since birth, Caroline uses her voice as an athlete to advocate for social and environmental justice, working on issues such as climate change, clean air and cyber harassment with non-profits such as Protect Our Winters, HEAL Utah, Winter Wildlands Alliance, Wilderness Society, Tree Utah and Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation. Caroline’s goal is to inspire people to get outside, live a healthy, active lifestyle and protect the places we love to play. Check out her blog  or follow her on Social Media @carolinegleich
