My passion for the outdoors was initiated by a trip to North Wales with my school when I was 13, excited by the Mountains and crossing the famous Crib Goch ridge to Snowdon left me wanting more, every opportunity I got from then on led me to the hills. I joined an expedition to Arctic Norway and spent a month in the Arctic Circle studying how the Glaciers had receded and the human geography of the area and even manged to see a lap settlement, we mounted an expedition staying overnight in Mountain huts and summited Mt Rajo on the border with Sweden I was hooked.
I was lucky to have been born in Derbyshire and had the Dark and White Peak on my doorstep to explore, through my teens climbing became my passion and Sundays were spent on Stanage, Froggatt and Curbar or Cheedale, Harborough rocks to name a few.
I enjoy a challenge and challenge walks met the brief, so subsequent years resulted in day challenges of over 25 miles, which then led to long distance walks including the Coast to Coast and Dales way, Lyke wake walk to name a few.
Summers holidays were spent walking in the Alps with my husband and boys
During the Winters I became a passionate skier moving from Piste, to Off Piste and Ski Touring – the ski tours which have took me across back country mountains from ‘Chamonix to Zermatt’ the classic ‘Haute Route’, the Dolomites, Western Bernese Oberland and more recently up to North Iceland in the Arctic Circle and Norway in March 2018.
When I realized that I had more rucksacks than handbags, I knew it was time to trade in the heals for walking boots and start Path2Peaks.
My passion is to share the outdoors with you and what it can offer, how it can increase your well-being and sooth the soul – nothing clears you head like a brisk walk, having spent years in the corporate sector, covering Buying Marketing, Programme and Project management. I took the opportunity to be true to myself and set up with Angela a fabulous company with you in mind.
