Caitlin moved to Alaska in 2004 to pursue Nordic ski racing. She quickly traded in her skinny skis and spandex for a backcountry ski set up and has been insatiably wandering around mountains and glaciers ever since. She resides in Girdwood, AK and tries to spend as much of her time romping around in the snow. Caitlin started guiding for CPG in 2011. In the off season she is a lead guide on Denali and has been working on the mountain since 2006. She is also an instructor for the Alaska Avalanche School and has taught glacier travel, mountaineering, ski mountaineering, and avalanche education courses for various companies and universities around Alaska.
