Feel the freedom & Be the Stoke
We hope to inspire as many mountain ladies as possible. We would love if we could get mntbabed in every coutnry around the world! But we'll start small and get the US states and Canadian provinces out of the way first.
The first "official" mtnbabe pic (we of course understand that hundreds and probably thousands of people got "mtnbabed" before we did, but for all intensive purposes we will start the story with this first "official pic") was taken in 2011 on top of a classic Colorado 14er: Long's Peak. We were initially inspired by the "Buffalo Girls," a group of local Telluridian women who really know how to slay the mountains. After discussing the current Y generation, we decided that there was a lack of female participation in outdoor recreation. We decided that chicks these days needed something to inspire them to get off the couch and get outside; thus mtnbabes was born.
