Some of the crew
Stephanie, owner & coach
Stephanie grew up Northern Wyoming and claims Red Lodge, MT as her original “home mountain”. Snowy mountains have had their hold on her ever since her first time on a snowboard when she was 13. She slowly found her way to full time living in the mountains of CA where she has been teaching out of Mammoth Mountain and June Mountain since 2010.
During her first season, Stephanie received the “rookie of the year” award as well as “snowboard instructor of the year” in 2014. Steph specializes in women’s specific training and events. She has a passion to grow the number of women involved in snowboarding, and to make the snowboarding world more accessible to everyone that wants to be a part of it. In 2020 Stephanie started Altitude Attitude LLC and later combined forces with Gina and Stacy to run events across different resorts and outdoor sports.
In the off seasons, you can find Steph snowboarding in South America, traveling the world, backpacking through the Eastern Sierra mountains, and exploring the US in her self converted box truck with her rescue mouse named Fival.
Stephanie is also an editor and gear tester for www.thegoodride.com.

Meet Alycia (Fish)
Fish hails from the mountains in the west and is often found traversing from the Tetons to Tahoe to the Collegiate Peaks of Colorado. Sometimes in a single week! She started snowboarding as a teenager at Bogus Basin, ID but got hooked on alpine skiing at the age of 24. The past 13 years she has taught skiing for all ages and attitudes. She now resides in Driggs, Idaho and the beautiful Grand Targhee Mountain Resort.
In the summers, Fish is found floating the wild rivers of Colorado, Idaho and California. She teaches whitewater rafting and swiftwater rescue at the highest level for the American Canoe Association through Canyon River Instruction. A former NOLS river and wilderness instructor: leadership, team building, education and risk management are a high priority. She maintains WFR medical training and is a bodywork enthusiast.
Besides being an extreme outdoor nerd, Fish likes to have fun and be immersed in the natural elements and light-hearted moments. Sunsets, mushroom hunting, reading or playing with the dog… its a never-ending adventure
Stacey, coach & Tahoe chapter leader
"My passion these days is to help other women achieve their riding goals and to overcome fears on snow.” Stacey has over 25 years of coaching, competing and teaching experience. She grew up in Modesto, CA and was introduced to skiing at Dodge Ridge ski resort. She decided to give snowboarding a try when she was 19, and never looked back. Stacey moved to Truckee in the fall of 1993. She got a job at Boreal in night ticket sales so she could ride every day. She eventually switched to Snow School at Boreal with the goal “To teach as many people as possible how much fun snowboarding is.” A few years later Stacey became a coach for the Northstar Snowboard Team nurturing the competitive career paths for some of todays pro snowboarders.
In the summer you can find Stacey hiking, boating and swimming around the Truckee Tahoe area when she is not designing custom furniture.
