Sheldon began her guiding career in Alaska in 2004. She has climbed, skied and guided throughout the Alaska Range, Chugach, and Wrangell-St. Elias. When a craving for shorter approaches and shiny bolts strikes, Sheldon’s favorite spots on earth are Chamonix, France; Courmayer, Italy; and Smith Rock, Oregon. She has also climbed and guided a number of high-altitude peaks including Denali, Aconcagua, and Kilimanjaro. Winter finds her in Colorado’s San Juans ski guiding from chairlifts, skin tracks, and helicopters during the week. Weekends are reserved for ice climbing and reading the New Yorker. She is a National Avalanche School graduate, AIARE (American Institute of Avalanche Research and Education) Level III certified, and teaches Level I and II avalanche courses. Sheldon is also an EMT.
