Review Editor


After graduating with a degree in Marketing from the University of Vermont, Amelia Traynor made the pilgrimage to Tahoe. She spends her summers hiking, camping, and waiting for snow – and spends her winters in the powder. From resort riding to backcountry, she's left the mellow mountains of the East Coast in the dust. She is also a contributing writer for Snowbrains, a snowsports industry blog.
