A true mountain dweller, Stasia Stockwell feels far more at home on a high alpine ridge than a busy city street. She writes primarily in the outdoor and adventure travel realm, focusing on destinations content and gear reviews that are intriguing and informative for newcomers and experts alike.

Stasia has worked as a backpacking guide in southeast Alaska and written for Treeline Review, BACKPACKER, REI Co-op Journal, and The Dyrt, among others. She’s a lifelong skier, mountain biker, backpacker, and trail runner who’s passionate about lowering barriers to entry for outdoor sports. She hopes to inspire people to love and respect the wild natural world through her work.

Stasia is based in Breckenridge, CO, where she spends her time logging as many ski days, bike rides, and trail miles as possible. When she’s not at work or on the trail, you’ll find this foodie cooking and baking while sipping on a dry Italian red or juicy IPA.
