Hadley Hammer was a young girl growing up in Jackson, Wyoming with big dreams. Like many of us, she went to school full-time with the plan of working professionally in the hospitality industry. At the age of 25, she was ready to embark on her career when she decided to enter a free-ski competition; the rest is history. Especially true for the action/adventure sports industry, Hadley’s path reinforces our belief that you have to accept and embrace unplanned risks if you want to live your ideal life. Even more important, she wants young girls to push themselves — she did, and it got her to where she is today.
