Allie Rood

“Skiing for the never-summer season”

Allie’s grandfather wanted to name her Hillary, of the Sir Edmund variety, when he first saw her climbing over everything as a young baby. She grew up in Vermont, where the mountains naturally became an intrinsic part of her life. Initially a ski racer, she moved west for college and quickly discovered backcountry skiing. This allowed her to pursue skiing as a self-powered adventure sport, which afforded her the opportunity to combine her love for climbing mountains with skiing. Upon graduating from college, Allie found herself in Wyoming freeskiing full time. She competed on the Freeride World Qualifier circuit, earning multiple top 3 finishes. Now, she is focused on ski mountaineering as well as adventure sports filmmaking. Currently living in the Southern Alps of New Zealand for a never-summer season, Allie has traveled all over the world in pursuit of adventure.
