After a year hiatus, I thought we would get back to some #NACFORADVENTURE spotlights. And it couldn’t be a more perfect time to showcase one of my favorite female skiers that I had the privilege to hang out and ski with alot over this season: Addy, who you’ve may seen on socials as “Addy Jacobsend“
She ‘s a die-hard skier that has a knack for big mountain sending and bringing technical skills to the hill.
I met Addy through the wonderful world of TikTok, so make sure to give her some love as she’s spreading good vibes to women in the outdoor space.
In the meantime, let’s learn a little more about her:
