Winter Adventure Series- Brooke Maushund and Anika Ramey
February 17 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Brooke Maushund: Jill of All Trades, Master of Fun, Snow Nerd, Ski Patroller, YOSAR member
Missing the mountains after working in Central America and Africa on off-grid solar projects, Brooke moved to Yosemite “just for the summer” to become a big wall climber five years ago… and never left (at least seasonally). Always on the lookout for ways to spend more time moving through the mountains, she now spends her winters ski patrolling, starting to teach avalanche courses, and volunteering at Eastern Sierra Avalanche Center as a key observer. She still spends her summers in Yosemite, now on Yosemite Valley’s Search and Rescue team, recently becoming way too much of an aid climber.
Anika Ramey: Wilderness EMT, YOSAR Member, Ski Patroller
Anika is a climber, skier, and artist living on the Eastside of the Sierra. She spends her summer chasing free climbing in Yosemite and the high Sierra and her winters ski patrolling. She’s worked as a wilderness EMT since 2015 and lead high altitude expeditions abroad and in Alaska. She is happiest climbing alone in the mountains and hopes to inspire other women to find their strength and confidence through solo expeditions.
This evening is sponsored by Mountain Rambler Brewery. The Winter Adventure Speaker series will run every Thursday from January 20- March 3. Tickets are $15 dollars each and will include admission, drink-ticket, and a chance to win door-prizes from local businesses.
