Sara Olbright, Senior Glacier, Kayak and Ice Guide

Born and raised in the mountains of Colorado, Sara started climbing and skiing as soon as she could walk. Looking for bigger mountains, Sara ventured to Alaska to take a mountaineering course after high school. She quickly became addicted to the state’s remoteness and challenging terrain. Sara has returned every summer, working as a mountaineering instructor or guide. In the winter, Sara returns to Colorado and works as a ski patroller specializing in snow safety. She attended Western State Colorado University and received a B.A. in Outdoor Leadership and Resort Management. She continued her professional medical training by receiving her W-EMT. Sara has also completed her Level 3 avalanche certification and numerous high angle rescue courses. When not guiding, Sara can be found skiing and climbing the large glaciated peaks that surround us. Sara has been guiding for AP since 2014.
