About Erica Engle
Erica is a full time professional mountain guide and connoisseur of the adventure lifestyle. She is a passionate climber and skier with a diverse background in rock, ice, ski mountaineering and high altitude expeditions. Erica hails from Washington State, where she was raised with a backpack and orders to not come inside until dinner. With good humor, she took those orders seriously and earned a degree in Environmental Science, working in forest ecology and commercial fisheries before launching her guiding career 10 years ago. Over the years, Erica has skied, climbed and guided throughout the American West and Alaska, Nepal, Tanzania, Russia, the Italian Alps, and South America. Erica is one of only handful of American women fully licensed as an IFMGA Mountain Guide. She is also an instructor trainer team member with the American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education (AIARE) and plays a key role in Jackson Hole Mountain Guides winter ski and avalanches programs. With passion for sharing exploration and a good adventure with others, Erica is inspired to join you on your next trip into the mountains.
