Andrew Drummond – Ski The Whites:
Andrew grew up in the White Mountains, ski racing through high school and got his first taste of the backcountry by tomahawking the Tuckerman Ravine Headwall at age 12. Through college he ski patrolled and ultimately fell in love with alpine touring after a few trips to Alaska. In 2016 he founded Ski The Whites and has focused on building the northeast community through events, media, and services.
Abby King – Backcountry Babes:
Abby is passionate about creating rewarding, positive experiences for people in the wilderness, and in so doing, inspiring them to become good stewards of the environment. She moved to Maine to explore and work to protect its land, air, and water after her thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in 2011. She returned to the White Mountains after thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail in 2017 and now works as the Conservation Lands Manager for the Upper Saco Valley Land Trust. Abby also guides women’s backcountry ski tours in New Hampshire and multi-day sea kayaking trips in Casco Bay. She is a Registered Maine Guide, MASAR certified Search and Rescue volunteer, AIARE Pro 1 avalanche professional, and Wilderness First Responder.
Jordan Cargill – Mountain Shadow Adventures:
Jordan has explored the globe, guided on three continents, and put up first ascents and descents. You can see his broad smile on a short trail run to catch the sunrise behind his home in New Hampshire or at 20,000’ watching the mountain shadow stretch out on the plains below. He combines limitless excitement for mountain adventures, a lifetime of diverse wilderness experience, and industry leading hard skills through technical training from the American Mountain Guides Association and other respected institutions to provide safe, customized, and unforgettable mountain experiences.
