Ryan Baker

Review Editor

Ryan lives and plays in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California with his wife. Happily rooted in Mammoth Lakes, they spend as little time inside as possible. When he's not fighting fires, patrolling the ski slopes, or testing gear and writing articles for GearLab, Ryan likes to ski, climb, bike, and hike. He is notorious for breaking things, plays the banjo, and enjoys painting mountainscapes when he’s not actively playing in them. He tries to keep his priorities on the people and activities he loves in the mountains he adores.
