Admiral of Snow Sliding
My level of stoke:
What I bring to the Alpine Club:
Hey everyone! I'm Jackie and I served as co-president from 2019-2021 and treasurer before that. I have passed the presidential torch on and am settling into my happy retirement role of Admiral of Snow Sliding. Caltech has free backcountry ski gear and avalanche safety equipment that you can borrow! (See the gear tab of our website.) But don't use it unless you have an avalanche safety education/mentor! We typically offer discounted avalanche safety classes (AIRE 1) once a year with SMC-- so definitely take advantage of that! Catch me at Mount Waterman for chill low-angle local ski touring vibes (1 hour from Caltech) or tearing it up in the Eastern Sierra near Mammoth. Pear Lake Winter Hut in Sequoia is incredible to ski into when open (apply for the fall lottery!!). Anywho, the club makes this incredible sport more accessible with our gear, so use it!
