Once labeled a ski model, Caroline Gleich’s path to becoming a respected ski mountaineer has been quite the climb.  From the billboards of Utah to the monsters of the Himalaya, there is no fear in this 5’1” ball of energy.  The podcast gives a little of Caroline’s backstory and then a lot about Everest.  It was a heavy year on the mountain and Caroline shares what she experienced.  It’s a real look into a world that most of us only read about and it’s a great listen.
