Holding fast to your dreams with Vanessa Chavarriaga: Episode 41
December 20th, 2021
37m 14s

Vanessa Chavarriaga is a mountain athlete, skier, environmental sociology and Colombian immigrant. Last winter, I had one of my favorite days on skis with her as part of an informal ski mentorship program I did to support women of color in snowsports.

In this episode, we discuss mentorship, reciprocity, making the jump from being passionate about the outdoors to being an advocate, elevating women outside and gett more people involved as activists. She talks about her childhood, her backcountry, how she got into backcountry skiing and her advice for other folks getting into it.

Vanessa is a rising star in the outdoor world and you won't want to miss this podcast.
