Eliza has been leading/co-leading four-season hiking and backpacking trips with the AMC since 2006. She and her family (husband and 8 year old daughter) downhill ski several times each season. Eliza's family have extensive hiking and backpacking experience in the US national parks, but don't have any particular claim to fame when it comes to skiing. She is a good cook and trip planner, which is what counts on this adventure!
