Lindsey Mills

Lindsey MillsWeekend Warrior

Lindsey was born and raised in Colorado and has, throughout her lifetime, explored the state in its entirety. Climbing her first 14er at age 8, she’s always been fond of the outdoors and never turns away a challenge. Now, Lindsey makes it a point to plan a winter ski trip, a backpacking excursion and an international exploit annually. Having completed a 10-day ski-road trip from Denver to Calgary, skied Hokkaido in Japan, canoed the Boundary Waters, backpacked Utah, she has much more planned for the coming years.

A weekend warrior, Lindsey truly embodies the work-life balance attitude to which most Coloradans have grown accustomed. The Communications and Content Manager for Telluride Ski Resort, she spends her entire winter in Telluride skiing and skiing and skiing some more. That work-hard, play-harder mentality keeps her on her feet as she bartends and freelances year round as well. Her love of the outdoors keeps her moving whether on skis, paddles, wheels, feet, or rope, she never rules out an adventure.
