Keynote Speaker, Melissa Arnot, The Fifty Peaks Challenge: Climb Every Mountain

Melissa has been a working mountain guide since 2004. She is a passionate seeker of shared adventures and perfecting the balance of learning and teaching. As an athlete, she is in competition with only herself, constantly pushing her own limits and trying to be the best mountain traveler she can be.

 

Melissa is the first American woman to successfully summit and descend Mount Everest without supplemental oxygen and has climbed the world’s highest peak six times. Known as a determined, hard-working and enthusiastic teacher, Melissa has devoted her life to learning from the mountains and sharing that knowledge with others.

 

In 2012 Melissa co-founded The Juniper Fund to provide financial support to families of local workers killed in the mountains of Nepal, and she continues to be actively involved with the fund.

 

Melissa lives in the Methow Valley of Washington State with her husband, Tyler, where they spend their time playing in the mountains while running their respective guide services.
