About This Blogger

Lyndsay Meyer is a professional skier, adventurer and multi-sport gal who travels the world in search of an escapade she doesn't like. Based in Aspen in winter and Switzerland in summer, she divides her time between teaching, training and sometimes accompanying like-minded adventure seekers on their next endeavor. She is committed to spreading the outdoor fitness love and has done so through her events and public relations experience with the City of Aspen and other private organizations, as well as on screen for Epic and Plum TV. Her fitness qualifications include NASM personal trainer certification and position as regional manager at Equinox in New York City. She is a certified ski instructor for the Aspen Skiing Company, teaching people to go uphill as well as down. A graduate of Colgate University with a major in English, she has freelanced for a number of magazines and online sports blogs, but life and experience have been her biggest teachers.

 

The wife of a UIAGM guide who guides in Switzerland in summer and runs CMH Valemount Heli-Ski Lodge in winter, her life is one of constant exploration. Waking up at four a.m. to summit a mountain or amassing millions of vertical feet skiing in British Columbia, she has extensive expertise in the world of adventure travel and how best to prepare for the trip. An avid racer of all different disciplines, she has competed in hundreds of different events around the world.

 

Lyndsay was one of the first American females to compete in ski mountaineer racing in the Alps. As a member of the US Ski Mountaineering team, she competed at the World Championships and on the World Cup circuit while traveling the Alps racing some of the classic mountain traverses, adding to a lifetime of mountain experience. Endurance cycling, climbing, mountaineering, triathlon, mountain biking, surfing, kite surfing, trail running, water skiing are all among her sports of choice. You can usually find her heading out to the airport with gear for no less than three sports on board.
