Katie Bono, Mountain Guide, RMI Expeditions

Born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Katie's introduction to the outdoors came through cross country running and nordic skiing. After becoming addicted to endurance sports and completing several trail marathons along the way, Katie attended and ski-raced for Dartmouth College in New Hampshire. She represented Dartmouth College at the 2010 NCAA Skiing Championships and graduated with high honors with a degree in geology. Katie was introduced to climbing during her college years and quickly became addicted to it, as well. She has climbed throughout New England, the Western United States, and the Canadian Rockies. After graduating college in 2010, Katie skied professionally for an Olympic Development team in Sun Valley, Idaho. When not climbing, skiing, or running, Katie spends her time drinking coffee and planning the next time she can climb/ski/run.
