Reach for the Stars!

Nina Silitch: World Cup Athlete
and member of USA National Ski Mountaineering Team


Always a sports enthusiast, I fell in love with ski mountaineering 5 years ago after my first Chamonix-Zermatt Haute Route with my husband of High-Alpine Mountain Guides. Ski mountaineering or ski alpinisme as we call it in the Alps combines all the things I love about the mountains: passion for endurance, tenacity of technical climbing, and the intensity of the downhill run off-piste

2010 marks an important year for me as it is the year of the Ski Mountaineering World Championships in Andorra where I will represent the United States. It is also marks my 3rd year as a member of the US national team and the 2nd season competing on the World Cup circuit in Europe.
























I feel very fortunate to be able to train, travel and race this high level of competition. My biggest fans, my husband and my 2 young boys see the value in following a dream. I hope to also empower confidence in women and show them how much they have to gain from sport and a healthy, active lifestyle.

Though many teams and athletes are subsidized financially, I am not and am responsible for costs of race entries, travel and equipment.





Please help me reach the finish line!
