Silvertta Ski Tour - Austria and Switzerland
Silvertta Ski Tour - Austria and Switzerland

I am a mountain adventurer. I live and play in the mountains of Lake Tahoe, California with my husband and our 2 children.

I bring my passion for the outdoors and new experiences with friends and family to  adventure travel planning for you.

I am passionate about exploring the mountains around me and I especially love to backcountry ski tour in the mountains around the world and have planned several European and Norway ski trips for family and friends.

While I love mountain adventures I am also drawn to the ocean. I love snorkeling and am always looking for new reefs to explore.

It's such a treat that my kids are now old enough to really get out there in the mountains and to go snorkeling for more than 10 minutes! I understand the logistics of family travel and can help with your vacation planning so your adventure vacation is a breeze!

I can help you plan your adventure dream vacation to:

  • Alaska
  • Australia
  • Ski touring in Europe and Norway
  • Ski Vacations in Europe and the US
  • California and US National Parks
  • Lake Tahoe
  • Maui, Hawaii

I know what it is like to love to play in the mountains and I am dedicated to helping you realize your dream mountain adventure vacation. I am detail-oriented with many years of experience as a project manager and environmental educator and hold an MS degree in Natural Resources Management.

 

Still on my bucket list:

Wintertime ski touring in Yellowstone
Ningaloo Reef, Australia
Iceland
Lapland, Finland
Grand Canyon, Glacier, Crater Lake National Parks
New Zealand skiing
Costa Rica and Panama with UnCruise Adventures
Castle tour in Ireland and/or England
And, I wouldn't say no to Tahiti :)

My first European Travel

Reviewed By Danielle - Reno, Nevada | Traveled to Barcelona ~ Spain ~ Europe
Kerry was very helpful in listening to the type of experience I wanted out of my travels while keeping price range and comfortability in mind. She also followed up with ensuring my travels would be safe with the protests occurring in Catalonia. I did not have any prior travel booking experience and I am so thankful I had her guidance. My hotel and flights were great and I am glad she recommended I buy the 2 day metro pass for ease of travel!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Best Honeymoon Ever!

Reviewed By A+T - San Francisco, CA | Traveled to Norway ~ Europe
Kerry is fantastic! We were looking for an active and adventurous honeymoon and we couldn’t have had a better guide. Kerry was incredibly responsive during our planning process and was great at anticipating potential logistical issues with our itinerary. With each of these issues, she thoroughly researched our options and was prepared with all of the viable scenarios in order for us to make fast, well informed decisions on our calls. She had great local knowledge and helped shape our perfect honeymoon, even following up numerous times while we were away offering alternate routes depending on weather! We can’t wait for her to help plan our next trip!

Reviewed By Juanita - Holland, MI | Traveled to California ~ USA
Kerry is efficient, knowledgeable, and took the time to understand our family's needs. As a family of four, we were interested in a wide variety of options. Her expertise in outdoor adventure and education provides an excellent base to provide consultation and thoughtful plans. Everything from backcountry skiing to nat'l parks to coastal areas for tide pooling was recommended. We only regret we didn't have more time to experience more of gorgeous Northern California! There were a number of parks with detours and Kerry alerted us to potential traffic issues as well. She has a vast array of personal and professional outdoor adventure experiences and loves to share them with others. Thank you so much.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
