Meet Modern Day Explorer Hilaree Nelson
Having ticked iconic first descents (like skiing from the summit of Lhotse) and over 40 other expeditions around the world, Hilaree Nelson is one of the most accomplished ski mountaineers of our time. But when she’s back at home in Telluride, she’s a normal mother of two who helps her sons with homework, has weekly board game nights, and heads out for local adventures on the weekend. And, more than anything, she hopes that her lifestyle encourages her boys to embrace their passions and make the most out of each day.
