Brynn Gotchey – Backcountry Ski Guide
Brynn is a true Steamboat local, moving from Florida to Steamboat Springs at the ripe old age of 4. She was instantly cursed by the Yampa Valley as the mountains, rivers and outdoor world of Northwest Colorado quickly took over her soul.
The Ute Indians who originally inhabited the valley proclaimed that “If you live in the Steamboat Springs area and leave, you will forever want to return and will not find the same level of happiness in any other place.” For Brynn however, it was a no brainer. It’s Ski Town USA and being the being a lifelong ski bum that she is, Steamboat Springs will forever be home.
As you do though, after graduating from Steamboat High, Brynn spent a few seasons working as a whitewater rafting guide on the Green, Colorado, and Yampa Rivers and she spent 5 winters working in Park City, Utah as a ski patroller and avalanche safety technician.
Now back in Steamboat Springs for good, Brynn says “I couldn’t be more excited to be home working for the best company around, learning from a great group of guides and in the best town in the world. Cheers to the Champagne Powder and the Yampa Valley Curse! See you on the snow.”
