Aloha! My name is Alyssa and I’m originally from New York City, which is about as far removed from nature as it gets. With not getting enough nature at home, I’ve always loved the outdoors and all things wild. After graduating college and studying happiness, I moved to Maui to experience a different landscape and culture and spend more time outdoors. In 2019 I thru-hiked the Pacific Crest Trail and fell in love with backpacking. Since then, I’ve spent a lot of my time in Antarctica working for a research station at the South Pole. When I’m not being a professional snow cone in Antarctica I try to spend my time doing as many fun and interesting outdoor activities as possible all around the globe with other adventurous souls. I am so excited to be a part of the TSX team to help bring people together to challenge themselves and experience some of the most pristine and beautiful backcountry areas our planet has to offer!
