Sherry is originally from Ohio but moved to Colorado in 1987 to learn to ski. Her first job was working in the ticket office for Vail Resorts. She enjoyed her time in Colorado so much that she stayed to experience the mountain summer. The mountains in Colorado in the summertime have kept her there since, enjoying the endless trails and the hiking opportunities.
Sherry went to massage school in a small town in Colorado called Crestone in the San Luis Valley. After receiving her certification, she worked several years at the Hyatt Regency in Beaver Creek, CO. An opportunity opened to move up to a yurt above 11,000’ in the White River National Forest to manage back country ski huts that are part of the Tenth Mountain Hut to Hut system between Vail and Aspen. Her days consist of restoring the order in the cabins and making necessary repairs, answering the questions and concerns of the guests, and providing massage therapy to the those who request it after their days of playing in the mountains.
During time off Sherry likes to explore the area by bike or by foot and during extended times off to take long solo non-motorized journeys. She has bikepacked across the U.S. several times and has also backpacked long stretches of the Appalachian trail as well as the Continental Divide Trail. Being in nature is her greatest joy.
