Born and raised in the Tetons, Morgan is no stranger to the mountains. Her first love with snow began on the magic carpet at age two, but has grown to include many facets and varieties. Morgan is an ex-ski racer turned freeride competition skier turned mountaineering and backcountry skier and now full-time mountain guide.

Her innate curiosity and quest for adventure has led her around the world where she has discovered deep snow, big rocks, and lively people. Morgan loves sharing her time in the mountains with others and hopes to instill confidence and competence in anyone who wishes to be there. She is passionate about empowering women and people of diverse backgrounds to spend time in the backcountry and is always seeking ways to help them get there.

Whilst not guiding or teaching, Morgan can be found drinking espresso, eating pastries, and romping with her similarly snow-obssesed doggo, Névé.
