About 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. In October, Caroline successfully climbed and skied Cho Oyu. You may have seen her on the cover of Powder, Backcountry or Ski Magazines or in a ski film. 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.

About the Squaw Valley Backcountry Tour:

Ski and ride outside the ski area boundaries of Lake Tahoe’s premier resort with Alpenglow’s AMGA certified guides. By utilizing the extensive lift system of Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows we can quickly access incredible terrain and get more skiing and riding in. For the first time, this terrain can now be ridden with a guide, opening up lift-accessed riding for skiers and snowboarders regardless of backcountry experience.
