Ruth Gorge, AK - Photographer Garret Grove


Bio: Born and inbred in SLC beneath the mighty Wasatch Mountains, somewhere along the way I fell off track and discovered an obsession for ascending to high places and skiing back down them. I’ve been traveling the snowy places of the world practicing that craft for the past 15 years. Call it backcountry skiing, ski mountaineering, or adventure skiing. There are so many aspects and I love them all; the inspiration, the perspiration, the challenge, the thrills, the travel, the friends, the meditation, the powder, the nature, and the exploration all keep me hiking back up for more.
