Emilie Drinkwater IFMGA Guide

Emilie is a guide and co-owner of Cloudsplitter Mountain Guides.  She splits her time between the craggy mountains of the Northeast and her new home base, Salt Lake City, UT.

She grew up ski racing in NH and began climbing while attending St. Lawrence University.  After graduating with a degree in Anthropology and African Studies she went on to pursue…mountain guiding of course.

Emilie has explored some of the worlds biggest mountain ranges from Alaska to the Karakoram, but will always have an affinity for the steep, technical rock and ice routes of the Northeast. Emilie is the Ninth American Woman to become an IFMGA Mountain Guide and works for Exum Mountain Guides and Alpine Ascents International.
