After working as a high school English teacher for many years outside Seattle, Becky Lomax and her husband moved to Whitefish, Montana, adjacent to Glacier. She worked for a decade as a hiking and backpacking guide, leading many first-time Glacier visitors to her favorite haunts—Gunsight Pass, Fifty Mountain, and Cosley Lake. She also served on staff at Granite Park Chalet, reveling in seeing wolverines and bagging the peaks nearby in her time off.
Becky now serves as the western editor for OnTheSnow.com, reporting on the news for ski resorts. She also writes frequently for regional newspapers and magazines, and has published stories in various national travel magazines, including Smithsonian and Backpacker.
