An adventurous spirit with a passion for connecting people to wild places. Laine is a part time mountain guide and works part time in the office for Norrøna Hvitserk Adventure.
Laine's mission is to provide people the tools, knowledge and opportunity to get outside and enjoy nature. As a guide and outdoor educator she encourages people to learn about their environment, themselves and explore with a sense of curiosity. Laine thrives in a long expedition setting, with just her backpack and group of participants to teach them how to live in wild, remote places, climb, navigate and develop leadership skills through outdoor experiences. In her spare time, you will most likely find her skiing up a mountain or cozied up by the fire with a good book, some tea, and plenty of chocolate. Born and raised in Wisconsin, U.S.A. she is currently one of the few international guides at Norrøna Hvitserk. Whether climbing, skiing, kayaking or backpacking Laine enjoys being in wilderness environments and sharing nature with those around her.
