Outside the Office

Growing up in flatlands of Michigan, Liz has always been fascinated by the mountains. Learning to ski on the 350 feet of vertical found at Bittersweet, Liz developed a love for the sport and has since followed her passion into the mountains. In the off-season she has recently taken up mountain biking and can be found exploring the great single track around Vermont.
