Stasia is a sucker for mountains. Since growing up in northern Utah, studying English in Denver, and guiding in southeast Alaska, she now calls the Tenmile Range of Breckenridge, Colorado home. She spends as much time as possible outside, trail running, skiing, and mountain biking with her husband and dog. When she's not writing or out in the backcountry, you'll find her in the kitchen cooking or baking something new. Along with writing for The Dyrt, Stasia is a regular contributor for Backpacker Magazine.
